I found this letter on my floor this morning. My teacher sent it around the end of the school year, and I had forgotten, but her words are so soothing and kind. I've shared a similar story before, but this is further evidence of her grace.
You have been in my thoughts and prayers so much this year because I have delighted in teaching you and I have felt a special kinship with you. During the last weeks, as I have sensed the challenges you have faced with relationships, I have not said much-but I have prayed much.
Know that I believe in you and have great confidence that you will find fulfillment. The inner resources I catch glimpses of in you as I get to know you better are a gift from God, and I know you have the ability to bless many people (I am one of them!).
"The pursuit of truth in the company of friends" is a motto that I especially associate with you, my dear young friend.
