She gets to speak for a few minutes and share her thoughts.
Her friends gather around to help her cut and eat some cake.
As tradition goes, she feeds her mom...
...and her dad.
And they feed her.
Her friends got a little carried away with the cake. That's alright. She's a good sport about it.

Serah is enjoying the slide show of her childhood pictures with her family.

I occasionally like to get my picture taken with those that I do lots of work for, just to remember the sweet and rewarding service that I do for that person.
