As most of you know I am a mentor by ministry,
Young women in crisis or struggle is what my heart leads me to do,
I have been menteeless for a while,
I was so tired and the girls were on their own, so I told myself,
Mama Deep needs a break,
However, for the past few weeks I told myself and my husband that I was,
Going to start looking again...soon,
However as with most things in my life, God steps in and does the work for me,
When he knows I am ready,
Yesterday I recieved a cryptic Email from my youngest, who is thousands of miles away,
"You will be receiving a call from a young woman who needs you"...
I rolled my eyes, Malik thinks his mama is the....
And can do most things,
I didn't hear from her yesterday, but this morning she called,
I remembered her from years ago, she was friend of my son's and she lost her mom at age 15,
Now five years later she has just turned twenty one and she is ready to change her life,
And she needed someone to listen,
First she thanked me for raising such a loving man,
Then she told me what her life had been like,
I allowed her to talk, interjecting when she paused,
Then I worked on a game plan for her, school, gainful employment,
We are going to get together soon,
I was so excited and rejuvenated and very ready,
There is always work to be done,
And it always comes when it's time...
So keep me and her covered with prayer...
