On Friday night at Opportunity Camp, one of our older boy campers came up to me and said, “Kensley, have you always been a good guy?” (For those who don’t know, Kensley is the most efficient way of saying Ken Hensley!).
“Not always.” Before I could say more, he continued, “No, I mean have you made any mistakes? I’ve made lots of mistakes.”
Smiling at him, I added, “I’ve made lots of mistakes, too, but I’ve tried to learn from them.”
“Me, too, Kensley. But’s it hard.”
“Yes, it is but it’s not impossible. That’s how you get better.”
He smiled back at me, adjusted his hat, and said, “Thanks, Kensley.” With that, he took off running across the field.
