It can be an amazing thing when you can benefit from knowledge from someone else's past. Today I will focus on being grateful for an idea that someone else shared with me from their coming of age. This person had a Big Brother - and the piece of advice that his Big Brother shared was to consider one's choices - as a yes now may mean a no in the future. (Or vice versa.) It seems like a small piece of advice, but it was a life skill I hadn't learned at that point. I'm grateful for the man who stepped up and decided to volunteer to be a big brother... and to the gentleman who heard and shared the volunteer's advice.
