I received a phone call yesterday from a senior student. A real life phone call. Not a text…a call…on the phone…from a student. I will admit it started with a text that said:
That, in and of itself, is a miracle, folks! A student who uses a phone to actually talk, rather than text.
Anyway, the student called because she had been asked to speak at a middle school girls gathering in two days. She was wanting to throw around ideas of what to talk to them about.
It’s a joy when you get to see the fruit of the seeds you plant. In this moment, I even got to taste the fruit.
She had been asked to speak and wanted to make an impact. We threw around some ideas and she felt confident she could take it from there.
Sometimes it takes a while — years, even — but finding fruit is worth the investment.
