Happy Memorial Day!

I received this card from a french lovely girl I used to take care of named "CHLOE" . This is her 1st communion card. Knowing this girl for 10 years now is special. I had a chance to see and enjoy her 8 years of wonderful childhood memories. Parting our ways was  heartbreaking but we keep in touch.

I used LCOM Sketch#20 to show case her card and Club CK May OLW Challenge (Connect my 2013 OLW "Grateful" to something that brings joy in my life. Little things that makes me smile.
