Even though we live in the same city, I rarely have the chance to see a very close friend of mine whom I consider my mentor. Mentor, not because she is way older than me, but because she never failed to pass unto me her wisdom about life, love and God.
Before she left for a one year mission in Africa, we met at a coffee shop after my work. We were so happy to update each other. We still wanted to stay and chat but she was leaving that evening. Before we parted ways, she gave me a very nice piece of religious jewelry.
Am I just lucky or what?! Hmmm... I suppose, I am blessed and I am grateful about it! ;-)
