I picked a beautiful rose for you, Aunt Ying…
and I took a stroll down memory lane;
Memories of you have walked
beside me for four years,
and they constantly fill
my heart with gladness;
I’m forever thankful
for this priceless treasure.
Today, in your honor
I celebrate life,
and think of you with
love, gratitude and fondness.

Think of what you can do with that there is”

Go on. Get drunk.”
Wow, seven years already? Time sure flies when I’m busy napping and eating all day.
So, what’s so special about the 7th year? Wait! Let me put on my thinking cat. As you know, number 7 is a special and significant number. There are 7 days in a week, 7 colors in the rainbow,7 layers of skin, 7 basic musical notes, 7 continents in the world and 7 wonders of the ancient world.
But, I’m rather intrigued about the 7 dwarfs in the fairy tale, Snow White,a lady bug commonly has 7 spots, the code for James Bond is 007, 7 Harry Potter novels, most of the mammals’ necks have seven bones, the neutral pH value is 7 and 7 beautiful letters makes us FRIENDS.
As always, my sincere thanks to all for being a part of this pawsitive journey.
“You don’t need a reason to be happy.”
