gratitude day 7

Today I am thankful for organizations like 4-H that allow our kids to grow, become leaders, mentor the young and basically assist the parents in helping them to become productive members of society.  My girls have the privilage of being 4th generation 4-H members.  Since 4-H has only been around for a little over 100 years, that is about the best one can do.  As a senior member, Sarah is taking a leadership role and has joined the county council.  Tonight she was able to practice speaking in front of large groups of people and handing out awards.  In the top picture, she had the privilage of giving her little sister Kristen her very first 4-H award.  4-H is really such an awesome organization that has produced many of our nations leaders, Faith Hill, Reba McIntyre, Jacqueline Onassis, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton , Luke Bryan, Vince Gill, Roy Rogers, Herschel Walker, Archie Manning, Charley Pride, Glen Campbell, Johnny Carson, Jermaine Jackson, Russel Honore, Lamare Alexander, Ben Campbell, Pat Nixon, Al Gore, Reggie White, and Jerry Huckaby for a list check out this site National Associaton of Extension 4-H agents.  No 4-H isn't just for farmers and their kids, it is for all of our kids.  Get them involved now.
