She was only eight at the time and we became great friends. I was so excited that she got to come to my graduation party. She is a social worker now at Akron Children's Hospital so some weekends she is on call.
When I sat down to open my cards and gifts there was a big bag. It was from Lisa. I pulled out this frame. I immediately recognized all of the pictures and logos.
Then Lisa came to read some of it to me. It is so sweet. My mom started to cry. I think some other people did too.
If you click on this photo you should be able to read it. You will see what I liked to do growing up but my favorite box says: "Thanks for all the great memories and those yet to come. I love you and am so glad you are a part of my life. I would not be who I am today without you." My mom says that is the greatest gift of all, making a difference in someone elses life. I am truly a lucky girl.
