A Mother's Walk
written for Good Housekeeping Magazine in 1933 by ~ Temple Bailey

 The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said: "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and  the young Mother cried, "Nothing will ever be lovelier than this." 

Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come." And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children, "A little patience and we are there." So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you." And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I have given them strength. 

And the next day came strange clouds which darkened the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped and stumbled ,and the mother said: "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light." And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God." 

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And mother said: "I have reached the end of my journey. 

And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them" And the children said, " You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her, but she is with us still. 

A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence." Your Mother is always with you. She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks, she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop.

She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you...Not time, not space...not even death!

Sunday, May 1, 2016



I have been begging for about 5 years now, maybe more. Day after Day, hour after hour seeing the crys for help coming out of Eastern Europe.  Knowing that if no one helps another being will die. I'm even crying here while writing.. I'm so angry at myself for not being stronger. 

Why doesn't anyone ...SOMEONE -- help these rescues in Eastern Europe. Now that isn't really fair, because many many people who have nothing, do help as much as possible! But it isn't enough.. Day after Day animals die of hunger, sickness, cruelty, Many different things That we who really care can do nothing about without money.  

Yes my desperation is money. I have never cared about material things, what can they give you? Nothing..A false attitude that your better then the next cause you have all this stuff... but if I had money I could help more... LOL I'd still be broke but it would not matter..because another life would be saved.

It seems like every rescue in the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina is asking for help. I really don't understand this country. They are not a generation or two from the devastating war they had neighborhood against neighborhood..Families being almost completely wiped out.. They still hate one another.. and yet they say they want to help the animals. But let one person from a different ethnic group do better then someone else and the hateful stories start.  The person doing good gets accused of not using the money for rescues. The people spreading these stories don't care that the animals will suffer... just that they hurt the other person, because of hate!

Then people like me who don't live there. Stop helping because we believe the person who told us they were cheating... My case is a little different. A dear friend went to Eastern Europe, Sarajevo was one stop she met the people I support and gave me a report on them and how they rescue.  So I continue to donate to them, even when the haters tells actual lies about them.

But it gets harder and harder to raise the funds for keeping the animals rescued from the streets safe..hatefull words have a tendency to spread like a wild brush fire in dry grass and brush...and it stops people who don't know better from helping..this makes me so depressed.. I feel like a failure.

Right now my three favorite rescues desperately need money...
3. HELP FOR FURRIES - Miska Oksanen
This rescue gathers money, food, blankets, beds any item needed and takes them to the little rescues that with out her have very little help, if any.

Miska Oksanen, an animal lover from Finland.  For years we have been collecting donations and donated money, food, medication and everyday necessities for varies organisations and private people who help homeless and less fortunate cats and dogs all around the world. 

This site was created to organise collective supply and fundraising and to make it easier for people to donate. We know how hard it is to choose who to help because there are so many in need and there is also a danger that the donation does not reach the animal. All of the people we work with are 100 % trustworthy and all of the donations through us go straight to the animals. 

We are always open in everything we do and keep track of all the donations; whether it’s funds, food or supplies.
paypal account:

I am desperate to get help for these three rescues. 
Please give a euro if you can not help with more, because animals will die with out your help.. not a nice lets lay down and give up the ghost kind of death either.. the dog catchers of Sarajevo hate these three rescues and if they can, will kill the animals.. In the cruelest way they can think of..

I'm so afraid you will not help, I'm crying again 
please, I beg of you to help them

Why are you hurting me.. 
Why do you hate me? 
What did I do?

 When is enough going to be enough?

He is "just a stray" ordinary mutt who has born in to this world without fault of his own. He never asked for this life.

Last year a man tried to kill him with axe, he failed. Later that same year on Christmas Eve 2015 that same man shot him. He almost succeed on his plan, almost but not quite.

He survived thru operation to save his life. He recovered from his injuries. Because he is "just a mutt" there were no home offers for him, absolutely 0 interest.

 So when having no place to keep him rescuers released him back to streets.

And here we are today. Just few months later, same man shot him again. This time he only hit him in the back leg. Again he is at the vet recovering from his injuries.

Yet again there has been absolutely 0 interest towards him, the "ordinary mutt".
So after his recovery there it is the same street waiting for him. The same ugly street where he has been abused time and time again, chased with axe, shot and god knows what else.

How can anyone hate him so much, he has done nothing to deserve it.

But on the other hand, we have not done anything to stop it either.  There are basically a handful of rescue groups to take in "just a mutt" for homing, there is nothing fancy about him, he is ordinary adult dog.

But the fact that he is "just a mutt" does not mean he would have any less love to give to you if you only give him a chance to show it.

I feel helpless and hopeless at the moment. We have 22 animals under our name and just tiny percentage of them have sponsors.

After my post of those two skeleton like dogs we raised under 30 euro to their costs. With that we can get them food for one week. (THEY WILL NEED HELP HERE TOO)

I simply cannot say that we take him in without a sponsor for his pension costs and food.  I know there are so many in need of help and he is just one of many.

But how many times he has to get shot to become interesting enough?

After the vet stay he would need 50 euros a  month for pension place and 30 euros per month for bag of decent quality food.

Is there anyone willing to commit for his costs to save his life?
When I read this post on Face Book from Miska Oksanen, an animal lover from Finland, one of my friends on face book!  I sat and cried. How can anyone be so repeatedly cruel for no apparent reason. Why can't someone help pay the monthly fees to protect this animal from that CRAZY MAN WHO WANTS TO KILL THIS MUTT! Miska will need help with the vet fees too.. Please!

Miska's group "Help For Furries" does a lot of work helping as much as possible. If you donate to her group, you will be saving animals. AND SHE SHOWS RECEIPTS for proof of where the money goes!

This is her FaceBook page:

I Know I keep asking all of you for help but how else can we save any of these babies!

"Just a Mutt"  

Thank you dear people!!





Dalida Kozlic Well to talk about her is difficult because there is SO MUCH TO SAY!
Most of the time you meet a person and you strike up a friendship and you really know nothing about their dreams and what makes them tick!

But this event page tells you a lot:

I copy pasted some from her event cause I know some of you will read here but not go look at her page.

Dalida is a lawyer from Sarajevo who has been involved in protection of animals for more than 15 years and she is one of the rescuers and activists with most experience in Bosnia. Also, she was one of the lobbyists who were involved in legislating of Animal Protection and Welfare Act in Bosnia, in 2009.

Dalida investigates cases of animal abuse, as well as cases of obstructions to implement Animal Protection and Welfare Act. Her activities are focused on enforcement of the Animal Protection and Welfare Act, presenting practical legal solutions in animal welfare area, collecting of evidences, filing criminal reports, and constant lobbying that Bosnian authorities implement the Animal Protection and Welfare Act. Dalida also acts as a liason with international animal welfare advocates. She follows all activities of police, the prosecutor's office, and veterinary inspectors, in order to prosecute and punish people who torture and kill animals. She also participates in media debates about animal welfare.

The biggest focus of her activities is to stop illegal dog catching service in Sarajevo at the moment. All details about atrocities that happen to stray animals in Bosnia can be read on

For the sake of all the animals in Bosnia, we cannot let Dalida's spirit be broken. She needs our help now, as she recovers from her latest court battle to save her dogs from unjust and tortuous deaths. Dogs are not killed humanely in Bosnia, especially when those who would be doing the killing are trying to extract revenge. Dalida needs our help to raise the money she needs to pay expenses through the end of April. She cannot keep her animals safe and fed without our assistance.

Dalida's picture:


Her YouCaring page:
This You Caring is to cover all expenses for food for 90 dogs and 8 cats that have been rescued from the streets by Dalida Kozlic. They need this to keep them safe, fed, healthy, off the streets, and away from the illegal dog catchers. Number of saved animals is constantly changing due to finding homes for dogs, but as well as to new cases of injured, sick or abused dogs!! Dalida is working very hard to get 50 of her dogs placed in adoptive homes outside Bosnia, and this debt is decreasing as time goes on, but until the dogs can be re-homed, it is necessary for now, to keep all her rescues safe.

#Begging and paying bills

What dose it feel like to beg...

Depressing mainly... You ask why?? Because it seems like I'm being ignored.

If every person who says they care did just one thing a month to help their favorite animal rescue. All problems would be answered..

How do you pay your bills? Personally, I get a monthly sum from two different sources My Social Security and my military disability pension. These amounts are deposited to my bank on two different days.
So I have made two budgets that I pay the day each is deposited.

In one is like my lights water tv and other things in this I add an amount for the rescues I help. It is a set amount each month. Then in the second one I do the same thing.. if I was working and was paid once a week all the bills would be divided in fourths and I'd have four budgets.. This way I insure all the bills are fully paid on time.

I consider my donation to the rescues as a bill owed monthly and I budget it in.

Maybe if you did it this way too, you could have a donation to help your rescue.

I sure would feel a lot better if the amounts on the yc pages grew faster and the rescuer would feel a lot better too... please pick a rescue and help



To me there isn't much questions to budgeting
You use three columns  first name if item next the amount paid next the amount left after paying

Hope this helps you... It does me.

  Dalida-Kozlic-Lawyer-and Animal-Activist


Lawyer at Advokatski Ured/Law Office and Activist, rescuer, lawyer at Animal rights activist.Dalida has90 dogs and 8 cats that have been rescued from the streets. Some are kept at her parents home. Some are in pensions. 

Dalida has been having problems raising the full amount of money she needs to feed, shelter and have medical attention for these animals, and I can not understand why..At the drop of a hat Dalida will step in when a Lawyer is needed to defend a animal rescuer in Sarajevo courts..  But it is like the supporters have forgotten how hard she works to help animals.
1. Her YC page for pension fees:

2. Her YC page for food:

3.  There are twi dogs needing special care at the vets clinic:

 One of the items that have happened that she desperatly needs help with: Copied from her post: 

Please read carefully and help if you can... 

While my parents and I are struggling to keep saved animals safe and fed, my dad has been informed about badly injured dog in Breza. An unknown driver had hit a dog and left him to die on a road in Breza. Local people had called the police station to ask what to do with the dog and police officers called a vet who worked in Public Company Veterinary station Breza. That vet refused to help the dog so my dad was called to help.
After he had found the dog, he took him to the private veterinary station in Sarajevo. Injuries are awful. This sweet boy has two fractures of front leg and two fractures of a hind paw including a fracture of a hip which is the most severe injury so the question is if the vet will be able to save the hind leg. The dog is waiting to be operated. The most awful thing was that he had been hit at 3 o'clock a.m. and no one wanted to help him until my dad was called at 10 o'clock a.m. so the injured dog spent 7 hours on the cold road in pain. He was in shock and had hypothermia when my dad took him. Of course I have made a huge mess to the director of the veterinary station and I will report him and his colleagues to the inspection.
I will need your help to pay all costs for him. The wires will be put in the front paw, Haris the vet will try to do the same thing with the hind paw and the hip. I don't know how much the operation will cost. As soon as I get that information I will set up YouCaring page. Also I will need help to pay medications food and place for this boy.
PayPal account is   (Please mark for the badly injured dog) All donations to Dalida's paypal:  must be confirmed 


These are the constant things that people in Sarajevo ask Dalida and her family to help with..

THE THING I DO NOT UNDERSTAND Is that she hasn't been getting the donation she needs
the pension fees are 2060.00 but has only been given 463.00 euros as donations 1,577.00 euros is still needed. Now it is April and her bills should already have been paid!

then there is the Food request:  
She needs 1000.00 but only 446.00 has been donated WHY.. Again I do not understand... This is dog and cat food they must eat to live ... Please!

Now the two special needs dogs:  The Bill is 230.00 euros - this one is much better she was given.. 153.00 euros so needs only 77.00 euros..

But just think all these added together is a huge amount that she can not raise with out you...  

Please Help...Give a donation!

Do you know how to confirm a donation?? Both Edina's and Dalida's accounts needs to be confirmed:
