Thank you for your company today! I’ve gotten to see you few times over the years, but even though I don’y know you as well as I’d like, I am always impressed with the warmth you exude, and each time it makes me determined to see you a bit more often.
I don’t know if I ever expressed this to you before, but I was honored and excited when you asked me last year to speak to your pregnant (and nervous!) friend. It was the first time that I was asked “formally” to meet with someone and offer them guidance. I was excited that you had such faith in my ability to cousel your friend – your confidence gave me encouragement later in the year to offer my assistance to other people, on a variety of topics. You helped me feel that I had things of value to share. Thank you, for a boost I am not even sure you’re aware you gave me. 🙂
