I've been a member of the Big Sisters organization for 20 years. My "little sister" is now 28 with a couple kids of her own. Yesterday there was a spring luncheon for Big Sisters and Sam (my little sis) and I were asked to attend. I had no idea that Sam was giving a speech dedicated to me and the positive influence I've had on her life. I was extremely shocked as well as touched.
There were other speakers and the message was clear. We can impact people even in little ways so we should try and make those teachable moments count.
Have you ever had a mentor? Is there someone in your life who is there for you even through the tough times? Or are you the one who is taking others by the hand?
