My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Ginger Dawn Harman!!!

Ginger Dawn Harman (Ginger Dawn, 6451) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Farmgirl Gratitude Merit Badge!

“I was gifted a lovely gratitude journal by my penpal, Mamey Brown. I wrote in it every day for a month with

I am grateful for




What I learned today…

I am learning to…

The Best Part of Today was…

I am still writing in this journal and have discovered that I feel more positive and less stressed during the day.

I am also really enjoying The Book Of Awesome by Neil Pasricha, I was shocked at how fast MaryJane’s librarian sent the book! I am almost finished with the book, and it has really made me laugh and ponder simple things. In a way, I wanted to simplify my life a bit more because of this book, so I deleted my blog and the rest of my social media! Yes, even Pinterest.

I want to make my connections more meaningful and really enjoy every present moment of my life.

The hardest part of this badge at the beginning was to not repeat what you are grateful for, but after a week, it came to me rather easy.

Honestly, we have so much to be grateful for, and when we open our hearts and become aware of this, our lives are much fuller!”

    Good for you Ginger Dawn. may I suggest my favorite book on gratitude ? “Simple Abundance- A Daybook of Comfort and Joy” ” by sarah Ban Breathnach. It has a short essay to read for every day of the year.Plus a great quote. I reread it every year. Today’s is ” Everyday Epiphanies”. One of the better ones. You can get it really cheaply on Half.com. ( where I get all my books online-much better than amazon etc) usually for about a $1 or so. Happy gratitude!
