She changed our lives, 22 years ago. Now she’s a kindergarten teacher and ready to change the world. (I’m confident she’ll succeed.)
She got straight A’s in school without opening a book. Now she’s got to convince kids to study. (Life is full of little justices.)
She struggled a bit in life along the way; the path paved by others was not always smooth. Now she’s a champion for kids at-risk, the underdog, the overlooked. (God is full of redemption!)
Today she wears a gown and honor tassels. Tomorrow she mops up fingerpaint. (She’ll be more comfortable tomorrow.)
Twenty-two years ago she entered our hearts. She will never leave that place of honor.
Congratulations, Ashley! Job well done!
