If you read this blog or follow me on Facebook, then you know that the Girl Scouts are something near and dear to my heart. I was a Girl Scout through eighth grade. I participated in the I Live My Faith Badge with a group of girls that I had been in school with for years. My mother was one of our leaders. I still remember our living room being packed ceiling high with cases of cookies.
I firmly believe that Girl Scout cookie sales started me on a path where sales would always be some part of my life. I am not someone who is afraid of or shies away from sales. All of this is attributable to Girl Scouts.
These days, I am now a proud Girl Scout leader myself. This is my second year as a leader of my eight year old daughter’s Brownie troop. This is my first year as a leader of my five year old daughter’s Daisy troop. I lead two troops and love sharing this experience with my daughters as I did with my own mother years ago.
Here in Atlanta, we just wrapped up cookie yet not a day has gone by where someone does not ask me “Can I still buy some cookies from you?” This happens a lot. People just love Girl Scout cookies and while I certainly love Girl Scout cookies as well, what I also love are the life skills my girls are learning.
