Though filled with bunnies and eggs and chocolate, Easter is a religious holiday. Now, I'm a big fan of Jesus, but I wanted to share some Easter with people who are of a different religion or maybe no religion at all:
Easter is about second chances.
Most of you probably know my friend @BigBoyBosco. A little bit ago, Bosco's mom decided to rescue a dog that was featured on Twitter. Bosco's mom drove a million miles (okay, not a million, but a LOT) down to the shelter to pick up Ginger, who had been abandoned by her people. Ginger was very loving on the ride home, but hit a snag with her new family. She pottied wherever and wasn't getting along with the other dogs. We were all sad because Bosco's mom had done something so wonderful by rescuing Ginger and Ginger was stressing out the fam.
But I saw a tweet this morning that Bosco's mom got her Easter wish and that everyone was getting along this morning and being nice and loving! This is great news!
And so I owe this blog post to Bosco and his family. They gave Ginger a second chance. I think she would be dead now if they hadn't saved her. It wasn't easy by any means, but now Ginger is a better dog for it.
Giving someone a second chance makes you a better person. And I hope that if you're lucky enough to get a second chance, you try to be a better person as well. :)
Thank you, Bosco & Ginger! And Happy Easter, everyone!
