I made a new friend today.

Her name is Fran, and she is 86 years old, and she's originally from Germany. She asked me where the 92 Foster to Berwyn bus was - the same bus I take - so we started talking.

Fran is a widow and she doesn't have any children. And she's almost completely blind.

Today really is a great day... I knew it before it even started. I have every reason in the world to be smiling. And I am.

I'm going to call Fran and she is going to take me out to lunch. :)


  1. aw that's really sweet! that was very nice of you to be kind to her, and you made a friend when you were! so proud of you, jess! keep up the good work :)

  2. Awe!! I want a friend like Fran!

    Glad to hear you're smiling:)
