Prepared

April 25, 2015 {115/365} "Words to Live By"

Last night, I had the privilege of attending the Boy Scouts Blue and Gold dinner. I was touched by the dedication and respect of the boys, their leaders, and their families. Scouting is an excellent way for boys and girls to build character, to challenge themselves, to grow into kind, courteous, friendly, helpful, loyal, and trustworthy citizens.  I was a Girl Scout from Brownies in second grade all the way through high school. I earned dozens of badges as I explored my interests, learned new skills, and grew in my convictions.  I am happy that my nephews are continuing this great tradition, and I'm so proud of their accomplishments. Chase is now a Bear and will continue his journey through Cub Scouts. Alec earn his Arrows of Light and all 20 Webelos pins, making him a Super Achiever! As he crossed over that beautiful bridge that his dad made, I was struck by the final words, "Prepared for Life." The Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared" and I believe that Alec and Chase are well on their way.
