How do you know when you've touched somebodies life?

Posted 06-22-2008 at 11:12 PM by timmy tiger
For many years I've been a Mentor for a couple of youth programs for a couple of Center's here. One of the youth programs shut down a few years back and the other program ended just a few months ago.

I loved what I did and looked forward to it every week. I really liked being with the kids and helping them with homework and anything else that they might have needed. We would take trips with the kids or go to Pow Wow's and we would all camp out. That was so much fun. I usually do smore's for the kids at any pow wow that I'm camping at on Sat nights.LOL If I'm there just look for the "Smore's Auntie" and that would be me.LMAO

In the one that ended several years ago there was this young girl. I am friends with her grandparents and I used to see her all the time at the program and on many weekends at Pow Wow's. I made her her first fancy Shawl Dance outfit and it was really nice. It was lime green satin with iridescent butterflies on it. It looked sharp on her. When she would see me she would come over to me and give me a hug and she was attached to my hip many times, unless there were other kids there her own age, but she would still hang around me alot.

As with anything we kind of just drifted apart, life gets in the way of things sometimes. I haven't seen this young girl in about two years. Her grandparents were going to move out West and I thought that they had already

Well today I got word through another person that this young girl, who is now 15 years old, wants to see me and talk to me. WOW that made me feel so wonderful. There are just no words to express how that made me feel, really. She tried to send me a text message today, but I didn't get it. She sent her cell phone number and a current picture of herself to me and she wants me to text her and to call her. Then she asked her grandparents if she could come and see me. So they are going to bring her over to my house sometime so that we can visit.

This young girl has been through a lot in the past several years. Her parents were always drinking and she was showing up at her grandparents house at 2am. Her grandparents got custody of her and her little brother in the last year or so.

It amazes me that this young girl wants to see me. It made me feel really good. She is a very sweet young girl.
