Because I'm still relativly new to all of this, it takes me about an hour to carefully iron on the 10 patches that make up her uniform. There was a time in my life that I didn't trust my balance and coordination to use a hot iron. I have to admit, this is not one of my favorite new tasks, which is why I waited all summer to do it.
Sure, I could complain that this job had to be done, but how could I do that? I have been given the gift of dexterity, better balance and most importantly, my beautiful Girl Scout. So even though there are things I would have prefered to do this afternoon, I will give thanks for the things that I was ABLE to do this afternoon.
Ironing on patches is just one more little thing in life that I don't ever want to take for granted. What did you were you ABLE to do today?
