The Haiku Challenge Day #21 ~ Dedication


 feeding the hungry
a soup kitchen’s caring hearts
the hands of service

fighting through her pain
a college degree her dream
diploma received

- 0 -

putting hands to hope
a home built by volunteers
paying it forward

My oldest daughter fought illness to receive her college degree. It shows how the dedication to a dream can see it become a reality
