Why we do what we do

This morning I was scurrying around the house trying to get everyone out the door to school.  When everyone was finally where they needed to be, I sat down with my husband to drink a quick cup of coffee.  I told him that I was already exhausted and it was only 8:15 am.  He asked me if I needed a reminder of why we do what we do.  Reluctantly, I said yes.  He pulled out his phone and showed me a text he had received mentee textfrom the young man that our family mentors. At that moment, all the little trivial things of the morning didn’t matter anymore.  What matters is that a 16 year old boy is inspired to walk along the path of becoming the man God created him to be.
