We know that sharing our happiness makes it even bigger, so when we made our book "Paw Steps to Happiness", we knew that we could use it to spread happiness around us.
We would like to share with you what we did yesterday to share our happiness.
In the morning Mum and Dad went to two opportunity shops in our suburb to donate some books that they will sell to raise funds : one supports the Australian Animal Protection Society, the other supports the work of Saint Matthew's church, where we went for the blessing of the pets
In the afternoon Mum and Dad went to the Starlight express room of the Royal Melbourne Children's Hospital to donate some books to cheer up the children and their families.
I wish I could've gone with them, I love children, but look, Mum got me a beautiful Starlight ball ! This is how she found out about Starlight, when she saw some volunteers selling balls and other fun stuff. Starlight Children's Foundation brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia. Starlight programs are delivered both in and out of hospital, providing positive distraction to children in their time of need. We are so happy to be able to contribute !
Mum and Dad brought a soft toy Mini Bella and I lent her one of my dresses so the children could see what I'm like :
Mum and Dad met Captain Starlight and Princess Starlight; they are amazing people who do so much to make the children feel better : Captain Starlight’s sole purpose is to bring smiles to sick children by distracting them from their illness and pain using entertainment and engagement. In the eyes of a child, Captain Starlight is a magical super hero, bringing laughter, games, magic and all kinds of fun activities into their lives. Captain Starlight helps children forget they are chronically unwell.
|Mum, I think you should join the Starlight team, you would be a great princess Starlight !|
And then they met Oscar the wonderful dog who visits the children in Hospital :
I'd love to do what Oscar does; Mum says I have to go to school to learn how to be a volunteer dog and that I have to be very well behaved - well that shouldn't be a problem, I'm always well behaved !
|Oscar is like me, he love treats !|
Mum and Dad had a wonderful afternoon with the everyone at the Starlight Express Room and would like to thank Starlight for everythuing they do for the children.
We would love to hear from you, my dear friends, what you do to share your happiness ? Remember, it can be a simple as a smile or a lick ! Tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Great news from our friend Cinnabar !
Cinnabar came home from the hospital yesterday and her Mum Linda was so happy and relieved.
Her platelets are back to normal but she is tired so she needs to rest and continue to take her medicines; she has to go to the vet for another blood test next Thursday so hopefully it will still be OK.
She is really happy to be with her lovely Mum who is to take good care of her : ysterday she had some rump treat for a treat, yummy !
Linda would like to thank everyone for their prayers, it really made a difference - it's the power of the paw !
Love in your heart wan't put there to stay. Love isn't love until you give it away.
