it was so long since I felt so very welcome in a place..
I earned my bronze medallion finally today at the Miami Surf Club!
They invited me for to stay over at the club for lunch
after we waited for us to be given the chance to swim the surf with the hard break...
I was the first to reach the shore among the 20 swimmers...
Never have I felt stronger and more vindicated to know my abilities as a surf lifeguard!
Now I can walk tall as I patrol the beach as volunteer to help save folks in trouble!
