To set an example of what it means to be an employee, a leader, a married couple, a follower of Jesus. To show kids and staff firsthand what it is to have integrity, by making the right choices again and again even when it seems no one's looking.
This was the point of it all, anyway. So why does it have to be so hard?
I never had to have hard conversations with a friend about why I just couldn’t come to her baby shower. I never sat in an empty nursery, clinging to a blanket that will never be used. I never had a team of doctors break bad news. Never once. Never even close.
I don’t know why. I did nothing special. I’m certainly nothing special. But can I tell you the truth?
