I would like to share a short story, which I think about all the time:
In the summer of 5760 I was working in the office in cgi Montreal and Levi (who was head counselor the year before) came to spend some time in camp. He was working on a project to organize the camp songs. We had a rather large room with a couch that turns into a bed, Levi stayed with us, it was great.
After camp I receive a thank you card in the mail from Levi, a general thank you and the bottom he wrote: “You’ve come along way baby, keep it up”.
To me that one line made the world of a difference, Levi cared and noticed the changes I’ve made, the struggles I was having and he made a point of mentioning it.
That line stayed in my head, at later times he did not have to say it, I knew he was thinking it.
