Reader's roundup for February 2010.


From Michelle (Mimita)
Journaling:
Alexandrians for Raymond:
 
What am I good at, do I have any talent?
What’s wrong, and why am I so solemnly silent?
I give this thought and the panic is invading
I’m not in fact all that better at anything

Does that mean I’m average, I’m insignificant?
I make so many efforts, I’m so compliant
But am I really better at any one thing?
Do I make that difference, I am thinking, thinking
  
My grandma said that we’re all special in some way
All those words of wisdom that I still hear her say
I do think we all have a reason for living
And if I could just put my finger on the thing

I’m so hard to live with and I’m pretty moody
I also have issues that frustrate me plenty
And that all makes me so awful in the morning
Do I make that difference, I am thinking, thinking
  
In all of my tribulations, my thoughts remain
There doesn’t seem to be one specific domain
I tried martial arts, tried translating and sewing
I tried mathematics, accounting, tried cooking

I can handle all that, no better than others
I can be polite but for that, no one bothers
So ponder over this, there has to be something…
Do I make that difference, I am thinking, thinking
  
I can write; that’s one thing I can certainly do
However, does it change people’s lives I ask you?
But perhaps there is something about perceiving
The truth is it’s that which makes me good at writing

I can feel what others feel, and sometimes right through
I can understand because I’ve so been there too.
Perhaps that is my one big reason for being
To make you see all the good in you and thriving! 



 From Debbie:
Well as Girlguiding UK celebrates it's centenary this year it seems only appropriate that my LO celebrates the fact that I am a Guider.

Journalling reads: 

I've been involved in Guiding as an adult since 1992 and I am so happy to still be involved and enjoying it in our centenary year. 100 years since a group of girls approached Baden-Powell asking for 'something for the girls'.
2010 promises to be an amazing year for all the girls, fabulous camps, trips and events throughout the year, culminating in a mass renewal of promise at 20:10 on 20/10/2010. I am happy with my little group of Rainbows. Photo taken at Dudley Zoo. June 2009.
