I loved being a Brownie! I was a keen Girl Guide and became a Queen’s Guide. After that it was Rangers and finally I became a Guider (Guide Leader). And I found it all wonderful.
|That's me on the left!|
I enjoyed the games, the badges, the fun. I relished the idea of being part of something. When I became a leader I had a clear sense of giving something back.
But then I moved house, went to a new Guide county and although I tried to carry on, it just wasn’t the same and I gave the whole thing up. That was thirty years ago. (The picture was over fifty years ago!)
But now I’ve made contact with Guiding again, this time with the Trefoil Guild and I’m hoping that again I will delight in this aspect of my life. Today I was at a small meeting at which we made some tote bags, next month a member will share some Thai cooking. It feels good.
