What a pleasant surprise when I opened my mailbox last week and found that the U.S. Postal Service had delivered this notecard from you!
I am so glad you enjoyed my presentation “One Day in the Life of a Writer.” I was happy to learn that I am not the only one who wakes up in the middle of the night wanting to jump out of bed to write down ideas. It makes me feel better that you said the same thing happens to you.
I was not aware that my visit helped your troop earn your Scribe badges until I read the Girl Scout blog.
Tomorrow I am attending the Girl Scout Fundraiser for adults at the Catamount Ranch and Club. I am excited! I have my ticket! What a cool fundraising idea to have some of the best chefs around creating savory appetizers from sweet Girl Scout Cookies. It will be interesting to see what the chefs will be serving up. I’d better take my camera! If your mom is coming, tell her I have saved a book for her and will bring it along incase she hasn’t yet ordered a copy.
Enjoy your outings, meetings and the friendships you have made through the Girl Scouts. I think I mentioned to your troop that I made life-long friends through scouting.
Keep on Writing! And remember the good news we shared about life “There are always flowers for those who want to see them!”
