Someone did something special for me last Thursday. They took care of my dog when I couldn’t. They are “fostering” her so she could have a vet check-up and can get medication for her hip dysplasia. The shots I’m paying for because I’ll feel bad if I don’t cover something. I’m also not certain how much this vet visit cost. I used to have pet insurance for all of my animals, so I haven’t seen real prices in some time. Needless to say, I’m looking for more freelance work. But my Moon has an angel right now that I’m extremely thankful for, especially since she’s been very sick this week.
Moon is doing well. We have antibiotics for her and began the Meloxicam to treat her hip dysplasia. She also has a lump on her left underbelly near her ribs that’s about the size of a kumquat or cherry, but the vet said it’s probably just a fatty tumor and nothing to worry about right now. I just need to keep an eye on it. Other than all of that, she’s fine and even got a pedicure.
I’ve had many angels in my lifetime. Some have been family; others, friends. I don’t talk about it a lot because I don’t know what to say or how to express how deeply appreciative I am for what they’ve done for me. They’ve all helped me in so many different ways. So if you’re one of my angels, a thousand thank yous. When I can again, I’ll pay you back or pay it forward, whether or not we’re still speaking to one another.
I’ve been an angel too. I definitely don’t talk about that because I don’t think it’s appropriate, so unless you’re someone I’ve helped who knows this is true about me, you’ll never hear of it outside of this one statement. I usually do this kind of thing anonymously. My only regret right now is that I can’t help much these days, but I’m working toward getting to that place again soon.
So if you’ve been an angel to someone, thank you. And if you haven’t had the chance to be an angel yet, give it a try. You’d be surprised at how little it takes to make a big difference in someone’s life.
