an adult mentor comes into a child's life.
If he's lucky,
this adult will understand him,
and lift him up to be his very best self.
My Chris is one of those lucky ones.
Chris is my middle child,
a pleaser, a perfectionist.
He is very hard on himself.
Enter Coach Tim.
Coach Tim is an amazing man.
He has strong Christian values
and a servant's heart.
He has served as a Commissioner for Chris's baseball organization
for years, even though his son's no longer play.
He does it because he loves the game and he loves the kids.
This is our third time to have Coach Tim
and each time, we breathe a deep sigh of relief
because we KNOW that it will be a good season for Chris.
I am sharing his email to Chris
as an example of an amazing mentor.
