A Scouts Good Example.

national eagle scout association outstanding eagle scout award

Today I attended a Scout Award program in our church while waiting for my oldest son in cub scout. Attending the program was not in my plan. I got curious when I heard the speaker mentioned my friends sons name (in church)  was receiving Eagle Award! I remember my husband told me that he is the only one in his family who earned Eagle Award. Must be hard..? To satisfy my curiosity, I went inside the chapel together with my 5 year old son and sat on the bench to observe. My friends son was the only one receiving award that night. His parents, friends and relatives were there. I listened to speakers and watched a short video clip of him when he was little. It was very touching and beautiful. I was moved when his father talked about his son's faith and love for the gospel. He shared how he admired his son for giving up his swimming career to be able to attend seminary. I was deeply touched and was so impressed at the young man. He is a good example to young children. Someday, I will share his story to my children. I am glad I attended the Scout Award program by accident today. I learned something very nice today.

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time. If nothing else just to set a good example for your l…
