Excerpt from: WHERE DREAMS COME TRUE
"Miss Burke cleared her throat. Her normally straight mouth was still smiling. "Ladies and gentlemen. The students chose Sarah Miller for our first presenter. Miss Miller..." Miss Burke swept her arm again to give Sarah her turn. All the way to her seat in the front row of desks, Miss Burke beamed. Miss Burke actually looks quite pretty, Sarah thought.
The room thundered with claps and cheers.
Sarah breathed-in air to calm herself. She saw Mama and Father and sighed. She closed her eyes just once, Poppy please send me a little extra love. I have not spoken about something so close to my heart before, only to you, David, and our Lord.
Silence blanketed the one-room red brick schoolhouse, even with all the animals present.
Sarah cleared her throat. "I dream."About the Author:
