Happy Halloween! Or for those of you not into ghosts, ghouls and terror – Happy Birthday Juliette Lowe. The founder of Girl Scouts was born today. I know this because Rachel and I have had to learn about her these past few weeks as we’ve formed our Brownie Troop.
One thing I didn’t know about J. Lowe was that she had very little hearing. She started out with one bad ear then on her wedding day a grain of rice got lodged in her good ear. She went off on her honeymoon, not wanting to worry about it, but the ear got infected and the process of extracting the rice damaged her hearing nerve leaving her with two bad ears. Her ear problems were minor compared to some of the other things that happened to her. Yet she focused on Girl Scouts, kept her chin up and had a positive attitude.
I don’t know where I’m going with this post, but Happy Halloween and Happy Juliette Lowe’s birthday.
