Yesterday we were acquaintances
Yesterday we shared a dream
Yesterday we shared a journey
Yesterday we became friends.

We planned,
We worked
We dreamed
We journeyed

We shared a vision
Literacy Without Borders.
Like the Hobbit's journey
We traveled.

We planned
We worked
We dreamed
We accepted challenges.

Funding, fund raisers
Coffee "the Readers Blend", nooks, raffles, sponsors,
One by one
Others shared our dream.

Joining us
Dreams turned into reality
Along the way
I got to know you

I learned to appreciate you.
I am thankful for you
I am grateful for your gifts
I am glad we journeyed together.

This is my gift
A keepsake of woven beads
Woven like memories through our journey
Dreams unlocked transforms reality.

Yesterday we were acquaintances
Yesterday we shared a dream
Yesterday we shared a journey
Today we are friends.

  6. Very nice post. I miss my friends. We've all moved away from each other and can't get together for coffee. Sure email is nice but there's nothing like laughing out loud with each other at the kitchen table.
