For A Sponsor

My dear friend and college roommate, Uyen, ordered this for a special person in her family's life.  This is for Genny.  A wonderful woman who sponsored Uyen and her family to America.  The story is beautiful and touching.  It reminds me of my own story and how my family was sponsored to America.  It makes me teary eyed thinking about it.

Anyway, this is for Genny.  Uyen chose 3 words to describe this woman who has a very special place in Uyen and her family's heart.  Then we added her October birthstone (opal).  Genny is flying to California from Michigan to visit at the end of September.  Genny came last year to visit for the first time.  However, this time around she is coming to visit with her daughter and daughter in law.  It will be a special time for everyone... and for Genny who will be celebrating a birthday!  Happy birthday Genny.  You are an amazing person for doing what you did so many years ago to bring Uyen and her family to America.  Thank you for being an important person in my dear friend's life.  May you wear this pendant and remember what an amazing person you are and the lives you have touched with such a simple gesture of love, kindness, and support.
