Afterwards she approached me shyly and asked me if I would consider being a mentor to her - she wants to learn more about how life will go on from here as a Christian woman, a wife, a student, and eventually a mother. I was truly honored - I'm certainly not an expert in any of those areas, but I've been there, done that, and have the scars to prove it.
I couldn't help but admire her desires and curiosity about what lies ahead for her. She's wise beyond her years. She's taking nothing for granted, taking life very seriously, and definitely a woman on a mission. She's an admitted "Recovering Type A" but her kindness and candor tell me she's open to God's best for her.
I'm excited to meet with her again. I have no idea how to mentor anyone, other than just be me and see what God has planned for both of us. Thank you, A, for honoring me with this request. You were a gift from God today, and truthfully, I'm sure I'll learn as much if not more from you.
Tea tonight: Green with kiwi pear
