Sending Thanks to a Classmate – Gratitude Project
Going to school as an adult was a different experience than going as a child. As a child, school attendance was my only “job.” It was my focus, fun and (majour) social circle.
Going to school (university and then seminary) as a mature student was not fun, was not my only focus, nor was it my majour social circle. Even though it wasn’t my major social circle, it was one of tremendous importance. I was going through an acrimonious divorce and worked hard to keep myself together and in school. There were many times when I wasn’t sure that I would be at school the next month. Some of my classmates helped me to make it month after month after month until I made it to graduation (2 times).
I am grateful for these ladies and men. Their continued prayers, acceptance, example and words of encouragement helped me to keep on keeping on. I sent a card to one of these former class mates. Cindy was especially gentle, prayerful, and loving towards me. I will be forever grateful to Cindy’s impact on my life. Her tenacity in reaching out to me, helped me to be tenacious in completing my goal (graduation).
I am writing at least 36 letters expressing my gratitude. And I want to pray for them on that day as well. Go here for the original post and list of recipients. I am writing about it here in hopes that it spurs someone on to write their own gratitude letters.
Your Turn . . . Is there a classmate (former or current) who has made a huge impact on your life? Have you ever told her/him? Why not do so today?
