This is the time when we take some time to reflect on the past year, while looking forward to what the next will hold. I always try to consider those gifts received during the past year. We had an excellent year, with more adults willing to share their gifts with the girls of Southern Alabama. In so doing, they are building girls of courage, confidence and character who will change their world.
To put the year in perspective, I was just sorting through this past year's photos. What a great way to reflect on the many experiences that have stretched girls beyond their comfort zone. These giving adults have taken them to new places, have them experience new activities and make new friends. What is most important is these girls are building skills that will last their entire life. What a wonderful gift you are to the girls you work with and your community.
I hope each one of you have a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic 2012.
