Today was my last day of classes in this role… it went beautifully and wonderfully.
I sang my students a very important-to-me song and blessing (ukulele accompaniment and lead vocals by yours truly), and they really got it, and it was clear they felt the love.
I felt the love from them, too.
And I felt how powerful it can be when I approach something with my heart, who I am and doing more and more every day to be who I want to be…
When almost every single freshman left class, and just had to hug me – and I don’t mean lame half-hugs, but genuine love hugs – before leaving, I really began to become present to the positive impact I have had on the lives of all of these boys.
And I am extremely grateful to God for, firstly, the capability within myself, and secondly, for be opportunity with these boys.
Now, to sleep, because I have events and grading to do this weekend, and I just really want to sleep a while…
