     O my.. I had plenty. I guess I just have a happy life.. But if there is one that I would tell my grandchildren is this : So 10 of us were strolling around in Amsterdam and we walked in to a cheese store.. And we were trying out cheese just spreading out around the store and after like 10 minutes we all walked out and start wandering around again. Or so we thought. After about 15 minutes of walking, one of my aunt who lives in Delft, realized that one people were missing. She was like “one people's not here!” in sort of a panicky state. And we were all like “no . . . we all here!”. So my aunt who lives in Delft got a phone call and it was our Aunt Bian! She was left at the store and none of us realize that she was missing. Oh, it was funny and a little bit mean actually. But still, we all have a good laugh everytime the story came up.

May God make your coming year a happy one! Not by shielding you from bad times, but by strengthening you to bear it. Not by making your path easy, but by making you sturdy to travel any path. Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, but by keeping your face bright, even in the shadow.

Happy New Year 2015!
