Do you remember when a long time ago I told you about Nie Nie? She is healing, and she is still wonderful. She unashamedly showed her new face since the accident and burns, that was a year ago this month. She was stunning and she is beautiful. She was and is a good mother and enamored wife. She is a creator, with an eye for beauty and art and love - joy and happiness. I am proud of her, along with the whole world. This is an email I wrote to her.
You are brave. You still have the smiling cheeks and sparkling eyes that I think are beautiful. Your motherhood and wifehood inspire and encourage me, as a young girl who thinks there is nothing better. Thank you for living and loving and sharing, and still writing and being selfless. In a sense your writing about yourself is the most selfless thing you can do and it is wonderful and helps other people.
Thinking about you makes me cry, but it also makes me smile and have hope. For your family and for myself, and the future and all of the things that will get better and for all the bad things that joy can still be found in.
Thank you. Lots of love and I wish I could meet and hug you!!!
