It’s not often that I have nothing to say:

 But last night, at the monthly meeting, my gun club members gave me a lifetime membership and an award plaque for service and leadership. 

I was floored. Seriously. So much so that I could not form words to say “thank you” properly for a while. 

I’m not sure that I deserve it, but they all seem to think that I have given outstanding service. I just try and keep the club going, and pay it forward with work and by doing classes for new shooters and such. After all, I get to use the club that others before me built…. Keeping the tradition going so that the club and the facilities will be there for the next generation. I didn’t think that I was doing anything special…… But the other members all congratulated me and felt that I have earned the reward. 

It was pretty cool. 

A REALLY nice ending to a day that didn’t start well.

  1. Congratulations.

    It seems the most deserving often don't feel they're deserving at all. The whole "just doing my job" attitude.
