A few weeks ago the leaders in our districts received from the Area Commissioner a plant pot with tulip bulbs in it. On the side of the pot was this note:
While you watch this sprout rise and stretch to reach its full potential, think of the girls with whom you work, who grow and expand and blossom under your guidance. Give this bulb the attention you continuously give the girls and it will bear a flower as wonderful and beautiful as these girls will be when they leave us. As you enjoy this blossom, know that guiding appreciates your time, your efforts, and the consideration you give the girls. We could not play the game without you. Thank-you!
