For every one of us that succeeds, it’s because there’s somebody there to show you the way out.
Today I’m thankful for Mentors
A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out in you.
If you’re lucky, you’ve had at least one great mentor in your life. They are those special people that inspire and encourage you to be the best version of yourself, take risks and not to be afraid to chase success. I’ve had many good mentors in life. Some were the school teachers I’ve had, and some were good friends that I worked with, but the one that stands out the most was my grandmother. She took the time to teach me many things.
She taught me about life. She taught me about religion, She taught me a lot about cooking and sewing. She had a very strong love of family. She taught me how to love unconditionally.
She had 10 children of her own, but she also taught school and was a post master/mistress at one time. She was a Sunday school teacher and she made pin money by selling eggs. She made do with what she had and knew the value of living life in the moment.
I can never be thankful enough for the precious times I spent with her. She made great impact on my life. She encouraged me to be a better person.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
