Greetings from San Jose. I’m sitting here in the Starbucks right next to the gorgeous Fairmont Hotel. The sun is shining softly on my unwashed face. I look all writer-like. Coffee. Laptop. Yoga pants.
Tonight I will have the honor of sharing part of my cancer journey with 700 guests who will be attending the Asian American Cancer Support Network Hatwalk gala. It’s a black tie fund-raising event. Good thing I borrowed those incredible high heels from the Amazing Viv Kawata. I’m having my hair and make-up done later on today. We’re talkin’ pulling out all the stops–even fake eyelashes (a first!).
I would appreciate your prayers for me. I’m also working to finish the second half of the book this weekend. Thankful I don’t have internet in my hotel room! Hitting the part in the book where I introduce Max and my heart is sad remembering him. Recalling those dark days of cancer treatment has my heart heavy. But as I remember, I also see in my minds-eye faces of so many of you who came alongside and supported our family. For each of you, my deepest gratitude.
I am guest posting this week on racial reconciliation series. I will be sure to link to the post when it goes up. Also, I am excited about what my web designer has been cooking up. My new website should be live sometime around or shortly after Thanksgiving.
Getting back to book writing.
Kind of stunned thinking about all the doors God has opened and all that has happened since last year at this time.
Read this morning in Joel 2:25
“Then I will make up to you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten.”
Our God is able to replenish, redeem and restore the “lost years.”
I hope this encourages those of you who find yourself in the lost years….
