My bucket list was updated a week or so ago, and I had a precious friend question #30. Be a mentor. She reminded me that I was there for her as a new Mom, and as a leader in my church at the time when she desperately needed one.
“Do you seriously not see yourself as a mentor?! I mean, I know it’s an on going thing, so I’m not sure anyone can really say they’ve “accomplished” being a mentor, because that implies some sort of finality and completion.”
I think I fail at helping people constantly. That there is always something more I could have done, or should do. Should call more, encourage more.
So….have you mentored someone? Had a mentor? Would you do it again?
