Checking in -

We went over to Berkeley today and saw Chris's apartment which I love. We enjoyed lunch together, and he made a fire in the fireplace.  Quite relaxing indeed!  We came home, and I was tired, so rested the rest of the day, and then, I wanted to check my email before I went to bed. I find many emails of love and support there. I am touched by each one, but I will place the one from my ten year old niece Katy here. She is studying Mandarin Chinese, and is waiting for the two of us to go to China together. We had thought we would go in a year this June, but I had been thinking since this happened that perhaps that was a bit premature. It seems Katy, too, has come to this conclusion. I receive the following email today, titled, "I miss you!" "Wo ai ni" is "I love you," in Mandarin Chinese. Every time I read her words,  tears fill my eyes.  I am blessed beyond measure.  It is a tremendous amount to absorb.  Jan offered to cut her hair for me, and give it to me for a wig.  And now, there is this from a ten year old. 

Katy's email:

I miss you so much.  I wish that we could travel, but don't worry, I can wait.  I probably have 3 more years or so until I speak fluently.  I am going to start ballet with Lauren.  I'm also gonna try to grow out my hair and donate it to Locks of Love.  I'm going to dedicate it to you, so that you'll feel better soon.  I love you.  Did you get the polar bear picture yet?  I love that.  I also love you. wo ai ni
