Daily Inspiration: Thanks to you!

This was first posted on January 13, 2017.

Update: January 13, 2018– One year ago today, I had 200 followers. One year on, I am approaching the 2000 follower mark. I am floored by the support from my fellow bloggers. As my way of saying thank you, I decided to repost my 200 follower Thank you post from 1 year ago. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing, talented and loving people. Thank you everyone!

(BTW…I have another giveaway planned when I reach 2000 followers…stay tuned for more info!)

HERE’S THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE:


Today I reached 200 followers. I am eternally grateful for each and every one of you. Today’s daily inspiration is a bit unusual. I am combining my daily inspiration with my thanks to you. I found a video of an individual saying thank you to a great non-profit.

The non-profit organization for today (technically tomorrow, since this is getting out after midnight!) is called Red Rover. Red Rover helps to bring animals out of crisis. Here is a quote from their website:

Founded in 1987, the mission of RedRover is to bring animals out of crisis and strengthen the bond between people and animals through emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education. RedRover accomplishes its mission by engaging volunteers and supporters, collaborating with others and maximizing the use of online technology.

Here is a video from the Red Rover youtube channel. The video is about Michael, an Iraq War Vet and his service dog Bane. Michael tells their emotional story…and how bane saved his life. He thanks the people who support Red Rover for saving the lives of so many dogs. Check it out, it’s about 5:00 long.

Animals are truly amazing creatures. In the video, Micheal discusses how strong the bond with a dog can be. I can understand and can vouch for that. There are many days, my most stressful days, that Max , my dog, (below) is the only one who can cheer me up. So I genuinely appreciate the wonderful work that Red Rover does.

So I just wanted to express

my gratitude one more time.

So from me (and Max),

THANK YOU!

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
