If I Could Have Just One Job

Location

If I could have just one job,

It would to be make a sad child smile.

A smile full of sunshine and hope,

Something they have not experienced for awhile.

 

If I could have just one job,

It would be to hug a troubled teen in pain.

A hug, you know, one of those bear hugs,

That heals their spirit and allows them to fly again.

 

If I could have just one job,

It would be to listen to a woman’s memories of her sister.

Listen, shhh, just listen…

And smile and nod and empathize with her.

 

If I could have just one job,

It would be to heal the spirit of a broken soldier

To talk about his internal battle wounds,

So, that he may have closure.

 

If I could have just one job,

No... a calling,

It would be that of a Counselor:

 

A calling to:

Make a sad child smile.

Give a hug to a troubled teen in pain.

Listen to a woman’s memories of her sister.

And to heal the spirit of a broken solider.

 

A calling to serve, give, heal, and transform.

The calling of a Counselor.
