I received my bracelet from Lisa, who I met about 8 years ago. She’s a great musician, singer and songwriter whose band played regularly at a local venue. We had heard about her and started attending events where she played. I was recovering from a serious illness and not able to be very active. I was so inspired by her music that I decided to learn to play a guitar myself. She gave me advice on what to look for in a first instrument, and as I began to learn rudimentary chords, she encouraged me to the point of inviting me and another beginner to sing at a mic a song or two during her shows. Along the way she became a true best friend. She is pretty and funny and oh so talented; she’s also smart and fun. We’ve had the chance to travel together with our husbands and shared both tears and laughter. She’s been there for through broken bones, illnesses and losses for us both – and I love her.
