Christmas Came Early For Brownie Girl Scouts In Yardley, PA

I remember my time in the Girl Scouts of America. 11 wonderful years were spent selling cookies, eating my weight in Thin Mints, earning badges, and training younger girl scouts to be involved in their communities. To see a florist take the time to inspire young brownies touches my heart in no small way. For a group of brownie girl scouts, Christmas came early this year thanks to Sheryl Perry of Monday Morning Flower & Balloon Company, a flower shop in Yardley, PA and flower shop in Princeton, NJ)

Brownie Girl Scouts Learning Floral Design

Monday Morning Flower & Balloon Company is a large part of two communities, as Sheryl proved with her visit to the brownie girl scout troop. Sheryl arrived with flowers from Monday Flowers’ flower shop in Yardley, Pennsylvania.

From here the fun and heartwarming moments poured. Sheryl taught the girls a few tricks of floral design. Each scout made three flower arrangements that they distributed to local nursing homes. (Aw!) Then each scout colored a picture of their favorite flower for display in the Yardley, PA flower shop.

Is this too sweet, or what?

When I first heard about this small act of kindness, I was at a loss for words. I spend many days hoping that the two little girls in my life will want to be girl scouts. To know that there are still incredible people out there who want to make a difference in the lives of girls — especially so close to the holidays — well, it turned my stoic heart into mush.
