Being kind to animals

Dear friends,

How are you doing? I am doing good as usual, working on getting better with each passing day.

Few days back, I posted something about kindness here. It was inspired by the poem written by Alison.

Likewise, many things happen around us that inspire us to do something similar. For example, we see people getting new hair-cuts and get inspired, we see people making YouTube videos and get inspired, we see people meal-prepping and get inspired, we see people leading a healthy lifestyle and get inspired and so on.

I started my blog with the intention of sharing small acts of goodness done by people around me to inspire and motivate others to do good as well.

These were small incidents that I noticed around me. I decided to blog about them here so that I could share them with you all.

I have been writing about the small acts of goodness done by people like us for some time now. Back then, there were hardly any people reading. So, I decided to write them here again so that more people could read them and get inspired.

They may seem silly but if you keep reading them they will surely impact your outlook in the long-term. I am sure about it because I have experienced it myself. You will start noticing and doing more good.

Today, I am sharing one such story with you.

One day, while returning from the park, in the evening, I noticed a bunch of dogs on our street. It was very dark and I was a bit scared about passing by them. It felt like the dogs were having some sort of party that evening. That was when I noticed that just next to the dogs there was a guy who was feeding them with biscuits.

The next day, the same thing happened. So when I reached home, I told my father about the incident. That’s when my father told me that the guy used to feed them every single day. They were not one or two dogs but a whole bunch of ten or more dogs.

The guy seemed to be a very simple person. He used to come there on his cycle, everyday, just to feed them. From the way he was dressed, he seemed to be a small time worker. I was really impressed by his daily commitment and selfless service towards those dogs.

I have seen many people doing such selfless service towards dogs, cows and other street animals. They treat those animals with lots of kindness and love.

Most of these people take care of such animals without any expectations. This encourages me to do my share of good for those animals as well.

What do you think? Isn’t this a wonderful selfless act of goodness done by people all over the world?

Love,

Rashmi

Unconditional love

Have I told you I love you?
If I haven’t, I say so now;
And don’t be surprised that I say I love you;
I don’t have to know you before I love you;
I don’t need to have met you before I love you;
I don’t need to expect to ever meet you before I love you;
You don’t need to be my spouse before I love you;
You don’t need to my child or parent before I love you;
You don’t need to be my boy/girlfriend before I love you;
You don’t need to come from my country before I love you;
You don’t need to be of my skin color before I love you;
I love you; that is all.
I love you as Jesus says I must love you;
If we never meet, I love you;
If you don’t love me, I love you.
Whether you like it or not, I love you;
Even if you hurt me, I love you;
My love for you is unconditional.
Nothing can stop me from loving you;
No one can stop me from loving you;
You cannot stop me from loving you;
Your spouse, parent or child cannot stop me from loving you;
I love you; and I love you;
And will always love you.

Pure love

This is a very special post for you dear friend. As you can see, it’s a joint project with Amy. I wrote the poem and she provided the lovely flower from PETALS just for you. In fact, I requested Amy to come over with it herself and she agreed as you can see her. Welcome Amy! This poem talks of the pure love between all of us on the blogosphere. Enjoy it! You are also invited to visit PETALS @ http://herladypinkrose.wordpress.com. Here is your lovely poem:

I know a love
so sweet and nice;
A love
so clean and pure;
A selfless love;♥
No strings attached;
The love I find
On the blogosphere;
Isn’t this the love
Christ talked about?Amy Sitting On Rock At Lake Erie
“Love one another
As I have loved you.”
If only this could extend
To the rest of the world.

Confident of tomorrow

Confident of tomorrow


Love beyond all bounds;
Cross boundary love.

When I say ‘I Love you’

Don’t be embarrassed
When I say I love you;
I really mean  what I say;
I love you;
I love my spouse;
I love my children;
I love you;
I love everybody
As my Lord and Savior
Says I should.
That’s the love I express here.
I may never meet you in person;
I may never give you anything;
Or receive anything from you;
But I love you;
Knowing you are there,
I love you.
knowing you are human;
I love you;
When you have a sweet soul
As I can judge from Your work,
I love you even more.
Whether you are married or single;
I love you;
Whether you are white or black,
I love you.
And I say it;
Even if the world hears it;
I love you;
And want to do my best for you.
