My grandmother and I
My grandmother, my beloved “ah ma” is still around. She’d just celebrated her 91st birthday in October but I couldn’t make it home from Beijing for it and a deep sense of guilt disturbed me for days. Finally, I was with ah ma yesterday night at Catrina’s wedding and again, for family dinner tonight. Despite her age, ah ma is still in good shape except that she needs the help of a walking stick and a hearing aid. At the time of writing this, I find that words are inadequate to describe the full and happy 91 years of ah ma’s life thus far and all I want is for ah ma to stay healthy and to be around us for many more years to come.
