Each week, I have a standing appointment with a 3rd grade boy. He is my “little brother” and I am his “big sister”. We’ve met nearly every week (except for summers) for three years now.
I was blessed to be matched with such a cool and awesome young man. Talk about a pure heart. Seriously. He is God’s goodness in the flesh. I love my time with Aristide each week as we talk, play Candyland, Battleship or Old Maid. We play math games on my iPhone and we talk about his goal to be a spy one day.
Even with all that love, I fight the temptation each Monday to press on with my work load or to do list and to see the time with this young man as an interruption. But I made a commitment and I love him, so I go.
