I will always be grateful for being able to visit my Grandma on her farm; it truly was the most peaceful environment I’ve experienced.
The fresh air, everything in her pantry was homemade, and it was like Time stood still. For me, the main thing I looked forward to the most, aside from my Grandma, was her animals. I could go into her chicken coop and get chased by the chickens 😂 I could go to the barn and feed the cows and I could play with her dogs! Oh those dogs! I loved them so much!
My Grandma had one dog named, Trigger who would smile at you! It was such a welcoming feeling going out to the Farm.
I feel, for any child or preteen, having the opportunity to visit a farm, is extremely therapeutic for them. I believe, aside from the fresh air, the energy from the animals is of pure love. I can still feel that comfort to this day!
I know some of us don’t have the privilege to visit farms, but there are options. Your local SPCA have animals that would love to have visits from children, or anyone for that matter; they are needing it the most. In fact, if you contact your local SPCA, they would also accept volunteers to walk the animals and do other activities with them.
It would be a win/win situation, the SPCA needs people to volunteer and the kids would be receiving the best gift of all – the gift of energy/love from an animal. Today’s children need this option, in more ways than one. To learn to give back instead of receive and to learn to love an animal – they have hearts just like we do that need comfort 💖
