Sunny yet Sad days at the Shelter........

"Sunny days are those days where everything is great. Sad days are those days where everything is not great. But when these days clash, we have sunny yet rainy weather, and nobody can figure those out."~ MRM

         At the shelter we have just had chaos. Not the normal good chaos though, it's chaos that nobody wants. People are fighting, people are leaving, and people are crying. I am a bystander. I see it all happen, but don't ever talk about it in fear of losing the one thing I have, the one place I can escape all the troubles of the world. I don't get this though now because of a silly little feud over cats and dogs.
        I don't choose to work with the cats more, I do it because they need more help at the moment. I don't love cats more than dogs, I love them both equally because they both need love. I don't hang out with the cats on purpose, I do it because they need it, but so do the dogs so I try to equally hang out with them. I don't like being in the middle of a feud. It's just one more thing I can add to my stress list. I don't like it.
        Stress is one thing a 15 year old shouldn't have much of. Grrrrr!!!!!!! I used to look up at the sky, sigh, and take it one step at a time up that hill, but now I feel like I'm taking one step forward and falling two steps back! This is not cool, good, or amazing. This is terrible, painful, and hard.
         So now what I will do, I won't give up on trudging up this hill through wind, rain, sleet, snow, or whatever Mother Nature throws at me. I will climb the hill, push through everything, and help out my friends and family and everybody at the shelter. I will not take sides. I will look up at the sky, sigh, and hope that one day, all this can be put behind us so that we can all get along someday. Hopefully someday soon.....
