“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself” – Unknown.

These last two weeks have been nothing short of a whirlwind. I cannot remember a time where I honestly had no time at all for myself, others and barely time for my dogs 😞 I even felt guilty having to take time out to get my hair done knowing I was buried in paperwork and phone calls. My brain has been on overload and it has been non stop with meetings, planning, applying for permits, licenses and of course funding. It has been a dream of mine for many years to be able to offer those who can not afford high cost medical care for their beloved pets so they can keep them at home and out of the shelters. Yes my personal life went on hold for several weeks, I apologize to anyone I have cut short on the phone, ( though I always asked first if it was an emergency and if they were ok ), or could not visit with, or meet for lunch or dinner, however once the wheels were finally in motion after all these years, there was no stopping or turning back. Today was the first day in weeks I got to actually relax, spend time with my furs, run some errands and do some chores!

Was it all worth it you ask? YOU BETCHA IT WAS! Knowing that it is all now falling into place and that in a few months our newest program Leave No Paws Behind, Inc. people, helping people, helping paws low cost Veterinary Clinic will be opening its doors and continue to not only help the animals, but to help those who truly love them keep them by their side ❤ I was that little bird who sat so silently, frozen and still on that branch, inching my way to the edge until one day I took a deep breathe, closed my eyes, spread my wings, jumped and discovered that all I ever needed to do was BELIEVE ❤

I want to thank all of you for your continued love, support and for giving me the courage to realize our dream ❤ A very special " thank you " to Frank Wisneski and Sue Lehman for holding my hand, calming my fears, walking me through my doubts and then jumping on this E Ticket ride with me ❤ Huge heart felt thank you to one of my dearest friends and my own personal hero, Cathi Perez for our daily 5 AM chats and for continuing to believe in me and LNPB and for the loving words of encouragement day in and day out ❤ Leonard Leichtweisz YOU are my ROCK!
