If we are living with everything working on us, we need to be thankful. - Ernie Chen

 

I am personally an advocate for PAWS MISSION and I do support their cause with some monetary funding. Recently I got to know a little fella by the name of Lil' Elvin. I have come a cross many stray and homeless puppies and dogs at shelters but this fella is something else. He is only 5 weeks old, but he is teaching me so much about the desire to live strong and not let circumstances hold him back. You see, Lil Elvin has problems with his hind legs where his muscles are wasted and he is not able to walk or urinate properly. I feel sad but at the same time feel that sometimes, we humans just complain so much that we forget that we are given so much.

So the next time, you see a stray puppy or any other living animal, remember that if you do not love them, the least you can do is NOT hurt them. Live life like we have everything that we need and be thankful for everything that is working well on us. Always remember to make a difference every single day.

Agreed! No matter how bad things may seem, there are countless things to be grateful for.

We can really learn a lot from animals, and a lot about love and loyalty from dogs!

It's good to always be thankful for your breath everyday, and for the opportunities and health you've been given.

Frances said...

I totally agreed! Love life! Sometimes they are more tougher then the people.

Always appreciate what we have and give back to others.

Being grateful for all the things we have with us now is very important because all these can be taken away from us in a blink of an eye and when it does, the regret we have is no longer valid..Appreciate and be thankful before its too late!

Many fail to be thankful for the blessings they have.. they often think the grass is greener on the other side..

Rachel PORTMAN said...

Totally agreed & be grateful

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”

Things to be grateful for in our lives:
- Your mind - For the ability to think, to store memories, and to create new solutions
-Your good health – For enabling you to do what you want to do and for what you’re about to do in the future
-Disappointment - So you know the things that matter to you most
- Fears – So you know your opportunities for growth

We should be thankful of what we have, our family, our health and our general well being.Sometimes its rewarding to sit back, reflect and be grateful.

We must learn to appreciate our life as it is without complaining. No matter what happens we must stay strong and bring the best out of us because we are gifted with a perfect brain and physical appearance. Be thankful to everyone who gives you a chance to prove yourself as an ideal human being.

people always ignore and never appreciate what they have... they only realize about it when it gone... so be thankful on what we have and achieve today and work for better tomorrow..

Beverly said...

It saddens me to see how some of us humans can be so quick to forget our blessings and so ignorant to the extent that we take too many things for granted; but it also brightens my day to see like-minded individuals doing their part to make this place better for all. Let's make a difference, no matter how small.

As for Lil Elvin, if he has that much will to live, I say... 'Live Long and Prosper' \\_//.

Strongly agreed...in our life, not all that we want we can get, as not all we get is that we really want. Be thankful of what we have in life and do not be selfish. ~Nurul Izzati~

every single life on earth has it own unique value.Even a little puppy like Lil Elvin is showing us the dignity of life and courage to move on.Yes,we indeed can do much better in life.Appreciate what we have and make our life to be more meaningful in every single day.

Grace said...

Most of us are too busy to reflect on what we have: always chasing more...we must be greatful and be mindful to help others, this we must remind ourselves everyday! Help those who dont have a 'voice' as it is them that needs us to care most of all!

"Be human and share": dont just 'lookout' for yourself!

Agreed! We should always be thankful for everything that we achieved in our life as also to protect the weak that lives on the planet earth.

Sometimes when we are at the top, we forget whom around us that helped to push us there and therefore we take things for granted.

Always be thankful for our family and friends and our bosses for their help and guidances.

Human like us should always remember to be grateful, love and care for others' not only for the same kind but also stray animal that are trying hard to survive on their own out there. Thus, learn to love the stray animal by not hurting them.

Thankful is a kind action. Just do it.

Samantha said...

Lil' Elvin does teach us his survivor spirit to fight on. Animal does teach us a lot in living. Always give back not just in monetary but in any ways that we could. Thankful to those who with me when i have nothing, i also learn to give when i have nothing.

Be thankful for what we have; you'll end up having more. If we concentrate on what we don't have, we will never, ever have enough. Together we can make the world a better place for all beings.

I very agree with this statements. In our real life, people always have too much complaining and unsatisfied.If we can hug a gratitude for everything that we have,it will be a harmonious world. Animals are a part of our lives, protect them, should be the duty of each of us, isn't it?
