|Luv that you can see Papa texting on his phone while he stays with Jude to get his hair cut!|
|See... the same ol' counter where we used to order boba smoothies together. And the same ol' sign we still can't read either!|
|Jude is still quite unable to sit in a chair without falling out from all his wiggly and giggly. Many things haven't changed.|
|Papa getting us a very small 25 lb bag of rice from the rice isle.|
And I also got you a couple cans of Thai Tea. Do they have these in New Mexico too? I know you love them!
Then there is the noodle isles pictured below. They are still packed with more types of noodles than we even knew existed. Do you see those bowls of noodles in the bottom right of the pic in the round bowls? We discovered how good they are in China. They are like really good Top Ramen. If they have any at your little Asian market, give them a try. There's really nothing in them that's good for you except surely sodium and MSG, but they are fast and easy. Beware that the hot ones are HOT.
|Your favorite squid salad! I can't pass it without thinking of you.|
|And just like always, a visit to the Vietnamese bakery for coconut bread is last. Oh my. I am still addicted to it!|
I know from our talks and texts that nursing school is kicking your butt these days. Although I have to say that you look SO cute in scrubs! Please remember that the best most wonderful things can come from the things that are hard. There is nothing wrong with hard work. It will end. Keep persevering and not only will you get through it, but the rewards will be everything you've hoped for and more. I know that you already know this, and I also know that knowing it and doing it are two very different things indeed. You can do this. Yes, you will make mistakes and that's to be expected. Learn from them and move on. That's all anyone can ask. In someways I know you better than you know yourself, and you have absolutely everything in you to finish this strong!
Send my love to the Airman too. I already love him so much. We have no doubt that he is a wonderful man! You and he are good together, knit from the same cloth of dreams, aspirations and action.
All my love,
