F is for Fabulous

Remember that Billy Crystal character on SNL that always said, "Darling, you look marvelous!"  It looks like I have my own catch word when I kick into daisy leader mode. Fabulous has become a favorite word for me when I greet the daisies.  I will say to them, "Look at all the beautiful, fabulous daisies smiling and shining!"

I think it is very important that each of those cute daisies feel like they are valuable, amazing, and perfect just the way they are.  My main goal as troop leader is to help the girls feel special and fabulous.  When we sit in the daisy circle, I always start off saying that they are all superstars and can achieve so much in this world.

I say the same to each of you: You are all superstars!  You are all fabulous!

(I'll try to feel fabulous sitting here in my sweatpants.  I'll just throw on a sparkly necklace and then I can play the "fabulous" role to the max when loading the dishwasher :)

I was going to choose a song called Fabulous but decided on the one I have,

Sounds fun! I bet you are a great Daisy leader. And, I think we could all use a little fabulousness in our lives, LOL!

Love it! We don't have a Daisy circle. And we're bridging soon, gah!

But you? You need a tiara. A tiara always makes ALL the fabulous come out!

I love fabulous! It's a happy energizing word.

Whichever way you look at it, the word fabulous belongs to you. I am always impressed by your ability to cope with four kids and a busy life and I bet there isn't a frown in sight. Well, not often.

You sound like a great leader. My daughter was a Daisy and Brownie. It was an empowering experience.

Thanks for being a Daisy leader Kelly. My daughter was in Girl Scouts through brownies and she loved it. Sadly, I was never able to be a leader but I admire those who are. It's an important role that I think you are perfect for. And yes, you are Fabulous!
