I am grateful for Girl Scouts! A year ago my friend, Trisha, and I decided to start a troop, and what a blessing it has been! The troop and organization has provided Liv with an environment to grow in so many ways. She has broken out of her shy shell because of the friends she has made in her troop. She is still quiet but definitely more comfortable to give an opinion. It has also given her the opportunity to try all sorts of new things. She has taken a pottery class, become more comfortable with a camera, learned to play new games, and even made her own pajama pants! I am also grateful that I get to spend this extra time with her... to be able to watch as she grows and participate in events with her! I believe we have become good friends because of our time doing Girl Scout activities together! I am also grateful for the friends that I have made because of Girl Scouts! What a great thing to be a part of!
I'll never have this day again - And when today is through I may not have another chance For things I ought to do - The friendship I should offer, The kindness someone needs, The thoughtfulness I can express In loving little deeds, The helpful words that someone Might wait to hear me say - Lord, help me to remember, There's only one today!
