How I want to be remembered :)

I'm continuing on my Project 31 journey today.

I've had to quirk today's question a bit, as it was asking how I'd want my grandchildren to remember me when I am gone. Since I don't even have children yet, let alone grandchildren, I figured I'd just do a general How I want to be remembered post.

I want the legacy I leave on this great earth to be my compassion for animals. I take a lot of grief over my efforts of fund raising for those animals that can't speak for themselves. I constantly hear "You'd save an animal before you save a human" or "How can you care so much about animals needs when there are so many humans that are just as needy" and you know what, to each their own. I feel that every cause is equally deserving, there is none better than the other. Just for me, personally, I feel that God has called me to serve with helping animals. Animal causes speak deeply to my heart, and bring me great joy and satisfaction to know that I am making but a small difference. 

I sometimes laugh at myself because my love for animals runs so deep that I even have issues killing the pesty ones. Many times I have to have someone else kill them for me. I even some how notice the smallest of animals on the road and have swerved to avoid running over lizards and frogs/toads. An example from a few days ago was somehow a caterpillar had gotten in my house, and half his body was squashed, but he was still wiggling. I knew he was in pain, and that broke my heart. I actually petted this small creatures head until my fiance came out to finish the job

By the age of 23 I was one of the youngest board members of my local SPCA animal shelter. That was such an honor for me.

I'm 27 now and looking to find a way to start my own business while some how doing what I love, helping animals. It is my dream to one day run a rescue shelter. 

Oh, and while we are on the topic of my passion for animals, so far I have raised $0 for the upcoming Pet's on Parade that I participate in yearly. In the past me and my friends have raised over $10,000 for our local SPCA since 2006. This year I haven't been able to be as active as I'd like as I am knee deep in wedding plans, as my wedding takes place THE SAME WEEKEND as this event. You can help by visiting my fund raising page.
