I crossed paths at a recent event with someone I had met during a college summer when I was working as nature director at Western Illinois 4-H Camp. She was a camper the first summer and returned the next year as a counselor.
Once she told me her name and told me she had been to camp when I worked there, it all came rushing back to me. The brief conversation with this former camper reminded me of the important role we can all play in a child’s life.
She thanked me for listening to her and encouraging her to try new things. At the time, I thought she was a great kid, but I had no idea the impact that my actions and attitude would have on her life.
