Invisible Threads

A few years ago, I learned about the concept of invisible threads from the book The Invisible Thread by Alex Tresniowski and Laura Schroff. Some may call it the holy spirit or heart, but whatever it is, it’s this idea that you can be bound to someone perhaps without even knowing them. Even in just meeting someone you feel this inexplicable connection them.

Esteban was my first recalled experience of said, invisible thread. I met him 4 years ago when I started out as an intern in Nica. I spoke about 7 words of Spanish at that time, but even in the first instance of meeting little Esteban, I felt what I can now best describe as receiving a little piece of home back in my heart.

As I returned to my normal life in the USA, when I thought about Nica, I thought about Esteban. I would wonder how he was doing, how his family was doing, what he was learning in school. Fast forward to 2018, I moved back to Nica to live full time. But I never saw Esteban or his family around the neighborhood, near the Monserrat school, or at the house where his grandma lived. I hadn’t seen him, but he continued to be on my mind. It was that invisible thread. It kept him entering what I thought was a random rotation of my thoughts and prayers.

Until one day, I was bombarded by three kids during a mass. They caught me off guard and had their arms wrapped around me so tight that I couldn’t see their faces. When they finally let go and looked up, I saw Esteban, and his two cousins Brithany and Bismari. The invisible thread brought us back together.

I don’t know why invisible threads exist nor can I prove fully that they do. But maybe it’s to remind us that we belong to each other. That we’re all just walking each other home in this life. Maybe in time, we’ll know for sure. But for now, in this moment, I’m just grateful. For Esteban, & for invisible threads.

Currently, Esteban is in our scholarship program, Leaders in Action, thriving in his second year of high school. He is a bright kid with a big heart and I know whatever he decides to do in the future, he will be successful.
