The photo challenge for this week was "sacred". I thought about this and came up a good entry for this. Then I found out that the challenge was changed.
I am going to post about sacred anyway.
The above pictures are sacred to me. Not so much the pictures but the pets in the pictures. No I do not worship my pets, but I do love.
The dog in the picture is butter and he was going to be put down when we pulled him from the pound. We were told that he was no suitable for adoption and all of this other horrible stuff.
Butter is the best dog ever!
The next picture is of the babies sleeping. I know that you can't see the kittens but they are doing great. Note that the kittens are sleeping on my homemade quilts, and true baby blankets.In the picture there is even a cloth diaper that I used on my own children.
A few years back I said that I wanted to try something new and that I wanted to work with animals. Little did I know that idea would grow and grow. Now I am quilting and fostering.
To me this is sacred. Fostering keeps me very grounded and it reminds me that animals depend on us for everything. Think about this. If everyone else said that someone will do it then nothing would get done. If there were not volunteers out there willing to foster these animals then they would die before their life began or the shelter would kill them.
To me helping to save a life is very sacred.
I do not treat these kittens as just common animals. As you can tell they sleep on our blankets. I hold them when they cry, I feed them when they are hungry, and most of all I love them.
I will sit and rock these kittens and tell them that it is o.k. to be scared. I would be scared to is I was their size, my mother is gone, I can't see and I have no idea what is going on.
To me an animals life is very sacred. Please watch the following video. I can't load it to my journal,so just click on the link.
