Yesterday was one of those “moments” that confirm the impact of what we’re doing. It wasn’t a big deal on the face of it, but the moment stayed with me all day. Three of our Strong Families Institute graduates were in the office buzzing about the new Mother’s Club they had just led at Orange Grove School. They were energized and said it went really well and they even got some great leads for the new SFI cohorts…lots of smiles and excitement and joy in their reporting. No big deal.
Except I just couldn’t stop grinning! Besides the fact that they had such a good time and it had gone well, here stood three wonderful ladies who were empowered to touch other lives and it was so important to them and so good for them. They were leading, they were serving, they were making a difference….and they knew it. WOW! Right there in front of me was standing the sweet fruit of our labor. It’s working. They have grown so much and worked so hard and now they are completing the circle by giving back and investing in others.
It doesn’t get much better than that. And I’m still grinning!
