The other day I blogged about meeting Bobby and Jackie Angel. I mentioned how one of my former students, who is such a huuuuuuuuuuge fan girl, had the opportunity to talk to Jackie on the phone since she herself wasn’t able to be there in person.
Well, she just blogged about it!
Not going to lie, I was quite jealous of all my friends who got to hang out, take selfies, and watch Jackie speak in the flesh, while I was stuck at home in bed with an injured foot. However, my day was made when one of the volunteers at my parish [hmm, I wonder who that is…], who was eating lunch with Jackie, texted me and was like “hey so can you talk on the phone right now? Jackie said she’d talk with you!” and I responded back with, “YES. OF COURSE” So later on after Jackie finished eating, she called me. I gushed to her about how big of a fan I was and how much a loved her, and she laughed and said thanks lol. I thought our conversation would just be a few minutes, because I figured she would just say hi and then hand the phone back. . . but I was pleasantly surprised when she asked me about where I’m going to college and what career I was interested in. I happily told her that I wanted to pursue a career in youth ministry and, God willing, become a traveling speaker just like her. She offered me some great advice and encouraging words that I’ll hold onto as I pursue my dream.

I dig how Allie saw this opportunity as a wake up call of where she needs to be focused in her life, and it’s a good reminder for even me as I read the rest of her blog post.
