Ashley’s Expression: From Lost to Found

Amber – I never saw you without a smile on your face. I forgot how much I like being around people who are positive.

I never really mentioned this but last semester during school, I really felt that I had lost myself. I was questioning my moral value and self-worth and doubting just everything about myself.

Not many people are truly there for one another, but I knew I could always count on you. Thank you for everything you have done for me and given me.

And thank you most of all for believing in me.

Love lots,
Ashley
