My notification for Messenger popped up and I see that someone has waved to me. Another notification comes through and this time it was a message from one of my mentors, who I meet my 9th grade year of school. She was our new first lady at church and upon meeting her I had no idea the impact she would have on my life.
She was in my area for work and wanted to know if we could meet for dinner. I immediately looked at my calendar and made sure I had nothing pressing to do. Now I haven’t seen my mentor in a couple of years. I don’t go home often and when I am home it’s typically a turn around trip. But I am grateful for social media because we both have been able to keep up with one another.
At dinner, we went down memory. We caught up on highlights of mutual people. We ate some good food and had grest conversation. And the conversation was different because I was no longer the teenager. As dinner ended, she said to me “I’m proud of you”. She has no idea how impactful those words were to me. I had been over thinking some recent decisions I’ve made. Was feeling like I haven’t done anything remotely impactful. It’s so amazing how God sends gentle reminders your way to let you know everything is alright.
