It was a warm April day. The birds were chirping. The sun was shining. You might say it was perfect. I pulled up to the church, ready to volunteer. I met the college leader in the parking lot. As we walked into the building it happened. I saw her. I remember it clearly. She was beautiful. She was walking our way. The college pastor introduced us. I said hello and she told me her name and then went on her way. I didn’t know that was a moment that would forever change my life, but it was April Fools day. I thought I hadn’t made an impression. In a month and a half it will have been 22 years since that day. She is reading to our son right now. It was the best April Fools day ever.
