Gong gong (ma’s baba or mom’s dad) was a very hardworking man. Born in China, he came to the United States on a Mother Teresa boat with three young daughters and Poh poh. Hoping for the American Dream, golden opportunities for his daughters, in a new land. I’ve thought about him a lot lately, with the anniversary of his death approaching and the lessons I’m reflecting back on. Today my picture is of the wind ornament that I bought in Sacremento, California the week of his memorial. Thank you Gong gong, for helping pave the way for your girls, and me.
