My Favorite Volunteer

In conjunction with Carolina Pad and VolunteerSpot, I agreed to do a post on my favorite volunteer.

My favorite volunteer is, my daughter Savannah!  Savannah is ten years old.  She loves to help in any way she can.  She goes to the nursing home in our area once a week and visits what she calls her grandma’s and grandpa’s.  You should have seen the eyes of  lady in the check-out lane after she asked Savannah about her grandparents.  Savannah told her she has 72 grandma’s.  Boy oh boy did that lady give me a dirty look.  No, I haven’t been married that many times.  LOL

Here is a photo of Savannah doing her second best thing, next to volunteering. 

Savannah is always first to volunteer in Children’s church to help out in the nursery.  She even stays late and helps clean up.  She also likes to help the little one’s get the answers to the trivia questions at the end of Sunday School.

Savannah helps her real grandpa out.  She feeds the horses, cleans their stalls, grooms and maintains them.  Plus she loves to give them exercise by riding them. 

Savannah also recently rescued a horse.  Her horse Red Bud was in sad shape when we brought him home.  He had been starved for quite sometime.  She took it upon herself to ensure that he got healthy.  He is her best friend.  He follows her around like a puppy dog.

Savannah is quick to find other animals to rescue.  I think she gets this from me, her mom, the animal lover.  She rescued a cat from a kill shelter when her childhood cat passed away last year.  Gracie is doing great and loving her new home.

Savannah loves to help our her aunts and uncles too.   No job is too little or too big.  She doesn’t mind and she never asks for anything in return.

That is why Savannah is my favorite volunteer.

Until next time,

M
