Friday: 7June13--why we do what we do.
All week long, and again tomorrow, I've been heavily reminded of why we do what we do with mentoring the whole person. This is about passing it on and paying it forward with regard to the Circle of Life Mentoring Model.
The Circle of Life Mentoring Model is not a formula or a system, but a way of thinking about oneself and others. To see this lived out in father/son or mother/daughter, or mentor/mentoree relationships delights and encourages the work that is currently being done. What hope.
And, no, this is not Justin Bieber. :-)
Down in Crested Butte and Lake City, mid week, this dad/son duo decided to climb Handies Peak yesterday before they returned back to Denver. Handies is one of the 54 14ers here in Colorado @ 14,048. The trail begins from the American Basin on the Alpine Loop out of Lake City, one of the more spectacular drives (all 4wheel) in the world.
Oops. Hey Dad! I think we are off the trail.
What does that sign say behind you?
Ah, son, I think we missed the trail due to the snow.
With Flordian fortitude, they made it to the top.
An amazing accomplishment, despite the odds.
Returning from taking them to DIA this morning, I found this. As is our hope, when we remember, we like the amazing souls we have the privilege of hosting to sign our guest book. This is what these two good men left behind.
Any other good souls want to come and visit?
There is more adventure to come tomorrow.
