30 Days of Gratitude: Day 17

Today, I am grateful for my Guides.

I’ve been with this Girl Guides unit for almost 3 years now. I only just got my qualifications to be an official Guide leader this year, and was asked to step up in a huge way because our Unit leader has uni commitments.

I was so convinced Guides would be crazy today. I was down 2 leaders and we were doing a cooking activity. Usually, that’s a recipe for disaster. 

However, everything turned out fine. My girls were exceptionally well-behaved and cooperative. There were some crazy moments, but otherwise, they were fantastic. They had fun too, which is always a plus.

It makes me a little bit sad to know that next year won’t be the same with some leaders and girls leaving. My Guides always know how to make me feel better. It might be something they say, something they do, or even just the way they run into Guides with a smile on their face. As crazy as they are sometimes, I love them all.

Today, I am grateful for my Guides.
