"Slaying Dragons in heels"
15 years ago I brought my little girl, Suzie to a meeting about Girl Scouts. I wanted her to grow into someone I knew she could be but I also knew I couldn't do it alone. I needed to surround her with other women in our community who she could be inspired by.
I never knew Girl Scouts would change me too. I remember when our community hosted a Baby Shower for a local Community Center. As girls were helping me get items out of my car one girl whispered to the other, "Miss Tricia could slay a dragon in heels." WOW ! Best compliment ever! It was at that very moment I realized, I could slay a dragon and in heels no less, but only because I was a Girl Scout.
Today as part of West Wind community, we are slaying dragons by taking on challenges and leadership roles at the Camp Wildwood barn. We are part of Daisy’s Circle so another little girl and her adult can learn to slay their own dragons. But only in heels if that's their thing, because cowgirl boots are way more practical when dealing with horses (or dragons)!
