Leading by Example

The sign on her lawn read

Warm blankets I collect

The ones you may reject

Thank you so much

She did this every year

Washed and packaged with care

Love she wanted to share

With a shelter

Where local runaways

Find safety and a bed

Time to sort out their head

And learn to trust

This place was where she lived

A confused, frightened teen

With no future, it seemed

They gave her hope

She grew up and moved on

Promising to return

Helping others to learn

Life gets better
