Today, I want to share with you an encounter I had with an amazing person. Handsome couple, she and her husband, professional people, seemed to "have it all." Consistent with what we read about ways to stay grounded in life, this lady was laser-focused on a purpose. Not a whim, not "purpose of the week" or "subject to change." HER purpose: Mentoring single moms.
That was at least a dozen years ago. Others and I have watched her see the dream become real, bringing numbers of others with her, mostly single moms. She calls herself a "Tough Old Bird." On the outside, maybe, but at her center, well, that's a whole other story! If I were a single mom with questions about life's issues, I would trust that "Tough Old Bird" to mentor me! - Gwen Mercer
