For Randi - Class of 2013

This is for the daughter of friends who is graduating Friday night..She's already got 53 college credits under her belt from her state's Post Secondary Options program, and looks forward to college and a Bachelor's Degree in nursing.

She is  a young woman with all the strengths and traits she needs to succeed, not just with courage and skill, but with  a compassionate heart.  She competes in shooting sports and is active in 4H, in service to her church, her school and her community.She's as adept on a dirt bike as she is with a homemaker's skill. But more importantly, she's a wonderful daughter to two devoted parents, a good friend to those she grew up with and a good steward of her God given talents. Here's to your wonderful future, Randi.

Embrace the Way:
Know the strength of man,
But keep a woman’s care;
Be the stream of the universe!
Being the stream of the universe,
Ever true and unswerving,
Become as a little child once more.
—Lao Tsu

  2. Congrats to her and those like her! We NEED them now more that ever!

  3. I really wish there were more graduating just like her.

  4. Best wishes to Randi.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

  5. Well done, young lady!

  6. What Old NFO said!

    And Lao Tsu was one smart dude! (and I don't use dude often)



I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
