I am grateful for my very good friend Wen. She and I go back a long way, since our early pre-med days. We’ve been through a lot of good times and bad. We’ve been there for each other all these years. Even now that we live far from each other and hardly see each other in person, we remain connected. Everytime we talk, it feels like we’re just picking up from a conversation yesterday, no matter how long the actual interval was. We’ve gone from harrassed medical students to overworked residents to radiant brides and now, both of us are hands-on mothers. She is such a wonderful mom to her three kids. She has terrific ideas regarding child-rearing. I am glad to have her as a friend and as a fellow parent. I have learned so much from her.
