We walk trough life and we make connections with people. Sometimes they are brief ... no more than fleeting eye contact as you pass someone on the street. Other times you make a much deeper connection that you know will last a life time. Yet no matter the depth nor the length of that connection, you may never know the impact you have in that person's life.
I was reminded of that recently. I only hope that I can make a difference in my students' lives. The reality is that I just don't know. But then ... out of nowhere ... I'm shown that I really did make a difference. That the impact I had was deep and lasting. That what I thought meant little, meant much, much more.
Guess it really is true ... you just never know.
