A mentor reached out to me recently and wanted to send a card of encouragement to her previous student. When I delivered the card to the student, she immediately asked to email a response to her mentor.
She shared how well things were going and how she was looking forward to her upcoming graduation. And she wrote: “I want to thank you so, so much for giving that time to me, to talk to me. I am more than grateful for you. You are a big part of my life.”
When the mentor saw her message, she wrote back: “This email made me cry!!! Happy Tears!!! Wow. Just wow. So glad to hear from her! That girl is on her way”
