Epic movies will be made.

Beautiful music will be composed.

Someone will get finally get their ‘big break.’

• A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra

• One friend who always makes her laugh … and one who lets her cry

• A good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family

• Eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored

• A feeling of control over her…
