The phone rang while I was making dinner….
UGH!! So inconvenient.
Don’t people know I am trying to make dinner and keep my household tasks on par?
“It’s me, “I just wanted to let you know what the kids are up too.”
Since I have put myself “on hold” with my Guardian ad Litem work due to family and personal health issues I have not kept up with my past resolved cases.
“I just wanted to let you know”…..
A long pause…a hiccup,…a sigh….
“The girl’s are high honor student’s, now.”
“Johnny, is on varsity basketball.”
I remember when I took this case..
The kids were wild-eyed with fear.
I promised those kids I would be THERE for them.
I promised those kids they would not have to shit in a bucket at the end of a trailer..
I promised those kids there would be a better day for them because I would help them find their voice….
and until they could I would be their voice.
I gave those three kids my word.
The phone rang while I was making dinner…
UGH!!! So Inconvenient.
I was told these three kids planted an Arbor Tree in my name.
I broke into tears.
I am humbled,
and full of awe.
These three have a forever place in my heart.
Not for what I have done for them….
But for the greatness of what they have given me.
