The children ran to Savannah to give her a big cuddle

She wrote: "No one was saying, 'this girl is gonna anchor the Today Show one day.' For this and a million other reasons, I am marveling at the miraculous blessing I have been given.

"Thank you, @todayshow, for ten thrilling, challenging, inspiring, and jaw dropping years.

"I could post many adventures (and maybe I just will!) but it's the dear people here that I hold in my heart forever."

Savannah was left in tears

Savannah, 49, became a mom for the first time at the age of 42, and she previously spoke about the joy of being an older mom.

"I think one great thing about being an older mom is that you are at a different place in your career where, in many cases, you have a little more say over your schedule and the choices you make. In your 40s, and now my mid-to-late 40s, you have the difference in attitude where you can figure out what matters and what doesn't," she said.

"And guess what? What matters is your family."
