My friend, Tink, does a lot of things REALLY well, except for one. She doesn't do a very good job of hiding her emotions.
There's only one way kids can cause Tink to lose her temper: just don't do your best, no matter what your task.
I'm convinced Tink can be everywhere at once. She's in the cafeteria looking for the kid who seems a little down. She's in a classroom helping a teacher. She's in the staff room at her computer and showering teachers with pixie dust as they come in to eat lunch and leave with a smile.
Tink gave me the gift of her trust. If you don't think that's a big deal, ask yourself how many people you've given your trust to, or how many have given you theirs.
Tink tiptoes in wearing turquoise tennis shoes, mismatched socks, her newest Darth Vader tee shirt, and chopsticks in her pink and purple hair. She makes me feel a little less stupid as she easily, and cheerfully, fixes something that had me baffled and frustrated.
Then, with a shy smile shining through misty eyes, she opens her heart and shares her secrets. Is there a Tink in your life? Someone who considers it her job to bless everyone, including you?
5 My friend, you demonstrate your faithfulness in all the things you do for the brothers and sisters; even when they are strangers to you, you treat them as family. 6 These friends tell the entire church how you have extended your hand to them in love. You will do well to send them on in a way that is in keeping with God.
3 John 1:5-6 VOICE
