Because I misplaced the envelope with the 2 school photos Maura gave me, I ordered a basic package so I could replace them.
I was supposed to give her cousin Charlie one before they got lost. Oops!
The minimum order is a “basic package”. What to do with the extra sheet? Envision possibilities for the future.
This I can tell you. It’s tricky to paint and draw on top of these school photos. Clearly I should have researched a neater solution. But I’m going to frame the sheet and take it out for Maura (just turned 11 on Nov 17th if you’re following) when I visit. Original photos credit to HR Imaging of Delaware Ohio
A Friend is Someone Who Likes You. (by Joan Walsh Anglund)
Can’t show you the sweet images inside as they’re copyrighted but it’s all about how lovely it is to have a friend.
I took the book to school in 1961 and the teacher, Miss Grace E. Wagner, inscribed it after I shared it.
A good friend is to be cherished.
You may not see your friend all the time, live far away, but when you’re together it is as if all the time between melts and you pick up where you left off.
Your good friend “gets you”, accepts you, and loves you, no matter what. And you love them right back!
Life events, milestones, heartaches, joys, loss and laughter. Sometimes all in the same moment. These are shared, celebrated or in the case of grief you keep one another in your hearts. Carefully. Remembering. With gratitude. And much love.
for my longtime friend – I love you. Happy Birthday!
