Dear Gift Givers,
Thank you so much for this precious gift on my graduation in my day-care school. It was great to have your gift by my side at my graduation ceremony and it was even lovely to get such an amazing present from you. I have always wanted to receive something that I can make the most use out of it. I don’t consider it an ordinary pen but it’s something from which the best things in my life will be written.
I will keep it with me my whole live and guard it
