"She's never had a real hug from me-- she won't let me hug her, it's like a dance move."

You know that Glennon Doyle Melton is my girl-- her daughter is a rock star too. This recent post will make you fall in love with Tish and make you believe that you are more than enough just as you are. That’s the shift, right? When I was little — I looked at the one size fits none standard of beauty and thought: “Damn. There’s something wrong with me.” And Tish will look at the same crap and say: ” Damn. There’s something wrong with THAT.”

Top 10 Things I'm Just SO Excited For: 

1. Passing out friendship bracelets at Tecumseh, Young Life Camp and Wilderness
2. Putting on the blue staff polo and wooden nametag for the first staff meeting
3. Sitting in a giant circle on the Longhouse Porch for the first time with Session 1 CILTs and going around introducing ourselves
4. Swim checks fully dressed
5. Reuniting with Brave, Blazer, Warrior and Pathfinder friends
6. Watching DC counselors in action when CILTs shadow them for a day
7. Scrunchies and a best friend necklace every single day
8. Conversations while walking the lake road
9. Hanging out in the Longhouse at night and something always going on in Hopi, Abnaki and Choctaw
