On the Road Around South County: Brief Thoughts

It was a very beautiful day today in South County as the City of Laguna Niguel Celebrated Scout Earth Day.   Quite a number of Units joined this day of service as all worked on the Trail to Eagle Project and were able to make a difference for their community.  Across town,  over 200 Scouts attended an Educational Event sponsored by Troop 772.   Over 200 Scouts from 79 different troops around Southern California attended the event.    It was a day of service that made a profound difference for the lives of the Scouts.

Thanks to the beauty of the internet, I was able to listen to Nick Vujicic at Saddleback Church on Sunday.   His Story is a story of love and faith .    His sense of faith was ever so evident as he spoke.    He reminded us all of how it is simply possible to overcome--as he has.

As a new week dawns In South Orange County,  Leaving you w/this "Thought" for all:

Essential to life

You are not too old or too tired or too broke or too disadvantaged. You are uniquely qualified to add substance to life.
Don’t get caught up in making judgments about what is fair or unfair or easy or difficult. Just get on with the satisfying and fulfilling business of making a real positive difference in the world.
You’ve done it many times before and you know you can do it many more times again. You know how great it makes you feel to know you truly matter.
So get busy, get some good stuff done, and feel that great feeling again and again. Forget about the silly excuses and focus on the significant difference you can make.
There are lots of great people in this world. Yet there is no one who can do a better job of being you than you.
Life is great, and you are essential to that greatness. Do your part, in your own special way, and feel how truly great it is.
— Ralph Marston
