Tonight was truly an uplifting experience!
My dream has been to talk with girls about their fears, and how to overcome them, simply by believing they can accomplish anything.
One thing was for sure, these young Daisies had more aspiration and hope about the future than I ever imagined for myself at such an age. It was my hope to instill in them that they are amazing and their dreams are realistic.
Looking out at their smiling faces gave me such a feeling of joy that I haven’t experienced in a very long time. I saw these girls as moldable clay, all coming with their own set of experiences and stories to share. Each girl was unique, precious, and had a sparkle about them. I had the opportunity to speak to each one of them, and they touched my heart back.
Every girl wanted her own SKIT book and I as author to reader, I had the opportunity to share a moment with each one of them, and give some encouragement to follow their dreams. The Daisies spent part of the time writing their own stories and then sharing them with me.
I felt so blessed to be apart of the Girl Scout meeting and I’m looking forward to visiting more troops like yours, spending time learning about these precious ladies.
