Forever a Girl Scout

My Promise:

On my honor,
I will try
To serve God
and my country
To help people at all times
And to live by the
Girl Scout Law

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting a troop of Brownies holding their first cookie sale outside at the grocery store. They were shy and eager, not quite sure about attracting attention. Some had been visited by the toothfairy but they all were adorable; so proud of working to earn their first trip to camp.
These days I see so many young people flashing their hand signals so I thought I would share mine in the picture above. That's my hand and my Brownie pin.
