20 years

>>  Thursday, November 19, 2009

Today I received my 20 year bar. That's the silver one on my badge tab.
I am so immensely proud of this. 20 years of giving to girls, giving my time, my energy, my holiday, even my sanity sometimes! I have run Brownie units, assisted with Brownies, Guides and Rainbows, done training, been trained, cooked endless meals on years of Pack Holidays, had no sleep on sleepovers, manned stands, tea tables and craft tables at so many different events - I have given so much to earn this badge

for all that giving I have received more than you possibly imagine. The smiles from the girls, the reward of watching girls grow and mature and helping them to fulfill their incredible potential. Guiding feels like a family to me. A family of friends, love and support. There is so much that I can do if I want to and it's ok to do only a little if that's all I can give at the time.

No matter where I go in the world, I know I can walk into Guiding HQ and say "Do you want some help?" and I will have a place, a purpose and a group of friends at the drop of a hat.
