Keep Calm because Girl Scout Cookies are HERE

Hello, My name is Kiana and I'm from Troop 3222.

My Cookie Goal 

311 boxes

My Cookie Earnings:

My troop and I are selling cookies so we can try to get enough money to go see a Broadway show and go out to lunch. We would also like to donate money to an agreed upon charity. Please help me reach my goal and Thank you so much for your support. 

My Cookie Learnings:

This will be my 4th year selling cookies. Every year, I have tried to increase my sales and have been successful thanks to loyal customers, friends and of course my family. 

It has been an amazing, exciting and fun experience for me. I have learned ways to boost my sales to reach my goals and also how to manage the money, I make from my sales. I learn something new every year.

Acceptance of death when it arrives is one thing, but to allow it to upstage the joys of living is ingratitude. I'm learning this now and I'm starting to live again, day by day.

There is no grief like the grief that does not speak. This is why I keep posting quotes and write. It helps me heal.

Private Conversations

Memory is like a glass. A person who has died is still visible, very close. But we can no longer contact each other. Death is mute; it excludes conversations, only allows silence. Henning Market
