My Rescue Saved Me!

When I 1st brought Jordan home almost 4 years ago, I thought I was giving him a 2nd chance at life. WOW! Was I wrong! He has given ME a WHOLE NEW LEASE on life since day 1. It is true he had some special needs due to how he’d been treated in the past, but so did I and only Jordan knew that about me, without speaking a word, and only he knew how to heal my broken pieces. While I immediately began massaging, training, helping him in any way I could, he was already doing all the same things for me, only I didn’t know it immediately. I saw improvement almost daily in Jordan’s behavior-it was THE most beautiful thing I’d ever witnessed. How could he forgive a human when it was at a human’s hands that he suffered so much? This miracle astounded me! IT and HE got me through every difficult situation that came up in my life-if he could endure the pain of literally having his ears cut off with a scissors, left to die with them infected, tied to a mailbox in mid January in Chicago, how can I complain about ANYTHING? Through him, I could face anything, because he showed me how TRULY BEAUTIFUL his spirit is-and how strong & forgiving he is. He made me face things I would not have previously been able to...He is the light in my heart...my only hope is that he has some idea how much Mommy loves him! <3
Every day I sing to him, “you are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray. You’ll never know just, how much I love you, so please don’t take my sunshine away”. And I end it with, “OK J, please don’t ever take my sunshine away, OK?”...& he always gives me a big kiss!!! Jordan honestly rescued me....in turn, I pray I have given him the love he so deserved and obviously did not get. He gave me a new career; I work with dogs now on a daily basis :-)
