Ups and Downs
Being a scout leader is amazing. Seriously. When it goes right there is simply nothing like it. When the big camp or expedition comes off after years of planning. When the shy timid kid achieves something that they never dreamed possible. When a kid smiles and says thank you. All those things make you feel ten feet tall and leave you with the most wonderful memories and friends that last a life time.
Then there are days like today. They come rarely but when they do they really REALLY suck. Some times being in charge is very VERY lonely.
