The Top 10 reasons I'm thankful

On the day before Thanksgiving, I'd like to share my gratitude with all of you.

And let you know...

The Top 10 reasons I'm thankful:
  1. Troop leaders share their time, energy and talents so girls can experience the benefits of Girl Scouting.

  2. Juliette Low's vision - to see girls blossom into productive and responsible women - is as meaningful today as it was nearly 100 years ago.

  3. We belong to a council that's not just surviving in these difficult economic times. We're thriving!

  4. Girl Scouting is still the best value in town - only $12 for annual dues.

  5. Volunteers willingly give their time to help us provide programs for girls, maintain our properties, serve on committees and even stuff envelopes.

  6. Several "super-volunteers" - our board president and members - ensure our council runs smoothly and ethically and remains financially sound.

  7. Our staff lives the Girl Scout Mission, Promise and Law every day.

  8. Friends of our council donate what they can - from a dollar to tens of thousands - so we can keep Girl Scouting affordable and available for every girl.

  9. We have beautiful facilities where girls can camp, hike, play and grow.

  10. I'm also thankful for my health, the love of my family and friends, and for this great country where a girl to can live her dream.
I could go on and on.

Please take a moment to say a genuine "thank you" to someone who has had a positive effect on you. It takes so little effort and can mean so much.

I like this thought by Margaret Cousins, a writer and editor:

"Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary."

Please add a comment and let me know why you're thankful this season.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jo Dee C. Jacob
Chief Executive Officer
