Simply Sunday

Graduation Day!

Strength and Beauty
Were present
From the start
Kindness and
Consideration
Toward those
Different from her
Emerged early on
The intrinsic notion
That different
Does not translate
Into less than
That we all
Have a place
In this world
And sometimes
An advocate is needed
To help others
Realize their abilities-
Compassion
Turned to passion
Passion to action
Goals set
Challenges
Accepted-
A bright light
In my life since
The day she was born
And to countless others
Throughout her journey

Our sweet daughter, Rachel, graduated from KU today with her Master’s Degree! She is a high school special education teacher, specializing in transition services. We are so proud! ❤️

  1. Congratulations to your Rachel!! I love the truth in your poem. Such wisdom…and oh how I wish so many more parents would support their children, encourage their differences as I’m sure you have and continue to do for your children.

    Your grandchildren will also be blessed by your beautiful skills and your deep wisdom, dear Kelley. ❤️

  2. People go far. My Beloved Sandra dropped out of high school. Eventually earned her High School Equivalency, then her Associate (also Sp.Ed., BTW), then her Bachelor, then Master, and is now My Beloved Doctor Sandra, EdD.

    Congrats to your daughter, and to you!
