To make you feel like you're showered with bundles of joy.
And when she blooms into a pretty young flower from a bud,
You know that your duty here is well done.
You have raised a pearl who in the ocean be found
To fill the world with happiness abound.
For you know that one day she would too in this world bring
Another being for whom the world would sing.
For good values that you passed onto your daughter when she was young,...
Will pass onto her children too as they will grow up and be strong.
So parents all around the world should know,
That a daughter is God's own treasure trove.
On the R.I.P. Page I've been sharing my greatest treasure for almost two years. Ashleigh's beautiful heart did not die the day Joshua Mahaffey and Joshua Scott broke in the doors and shot her. She lives in me, her family, her friends, the stories told, the people who pass on what happened to save others but most of all I believe it lives on when we choose to share her love with others.
So far it has been an amazing week for me. I have managed to do all but 3 of the things on the list that I set out to do. Tomorrow, hopefully I will finish the rest. The experience has made me not only feel closer to Ashleigh but also, stronger, more spiritual, confident, and joyful.
I'm looking forward to seeing the post tomorrow of Ashleigh's Heart being Shared by the kindness you decided to pick from on the list. Thank you all so much for agreeing to participate and for sharing with your friends. You all are a blessing.
