I've been thinking a lot lately about how much I miss being in the presence of my parents and grandparents. I grew up in a multi-generational church that included multiple generations of my own family, and there was no shortage of mentor-ish people in my life.
Now, I really love our church. However, there is a shortage of people significantly older than us there. We're definitely growing, and gaining more families, but I miss the parent and grandparent set.
The events of the past few months have wore me out, and I would just love someone to be a sounding board, to encourage and uplift and refresh me... and challenge me. Maybe that's not exactly what a mentor is for, but I just think that sounds nice right now. I just don't know where to find that.
Anyways, it's the last week of my 23rd year.
Better make it good.
