Volunteer of the Year

by Sandra Schappert
(Ontario, Canada)

It was an unexpected accolade from one of many organizations I am involved with. I was very proud to receive the trophy but never even thought about myself as a candidate. It was quite a surprise to me.

When I told my mother about it she said, "So that's why you do it (all that volunteering)." In other words, for all that recognition.

I was hurt beyond words because I have been a sensitive, caring individual since I was a child. My attraction to the underdog was carried through in my profession as a special education teacher.
Now retired, I lend my God-given talents to many committees.

Nonetheless, I had to wonder about what Mom had said. I'd never thought about why I've done these things but Shelley's poem gave me further food for thought.

Sometimes I'm at the breaking point and want to quit.

This poem tell's me to think of the greater glory of being God's daughter. I will still want to be here to do God's will but this has given me the courage to say, "Let go and let God".

Thank you,

Sandra Schappert
