Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
"Good job!"

Sometimes just showing up is worth celebrating. Doing something that stretches you, doing something that even scares you . . . that's character-building.

Today the judges in my room saw young women who were mostly a little rough around the edges. And many of them admitted they were there to try to improve themselves. One seemed to want nothing more than to tell someone how disfunctional her family is. So she chose us.

The important thing for me was to say "Good job!" to every girl. No matter what happens, I hope those words are what they remember when they look back at this experience years from now. I'm lucky to be empowered to make that impression.

It was a long, tiring day. But a rewarding one.

You ROCK! For making sure those young women had good experiences.

And for being there!

And for coming home tired after a long day (and week) and then going out to support yet ANOTHER event. Talk about BEING THERE for others! That's you.

(And putting your $$$ where your mouth is tonight, as always.)

Character? You've got it in spades. I'm proud to be your sister...

It does sound rewarding.

Good for you Marilyn, and those young girls need someone like you to try and make this a very positive experience for them. It is not easy being a teenager with all of the hormone issues, and tough choices they need to make about their futures. I am glad to be your sister also, and very proud of all that you do. Your character is perfect in my book and I so wish there was a way that you could help Nicole have more self confidence. I try, but she doesn't listen to grandma sometimes.

Hope you had some rest on Sunday before yet another busy week.
