2. our favorite things

In August 2008, I wrote my extended family the email below, and this is the small book that resulted from it. Flip through the book if you’d like.

Hi everyone,

Hope you are doing well.

I am writing to see if you can help me out on a little family project…

Two years ago, I called Po Po for the first time ever just to talk. There was no Chinese holiday, no special occasion. I just have always known she is my hero but never tried to tell her. During that phone call, she laughed the happiest laugh I had ever heard, and we have been chatting like buddies since. Half the time I can’t believe the kind of things she would tell me. And so, I started collecting and writing down Po Po’s stories. I feel that these stories need to be passed on to our children and their children and even grandchildren so they can know all about their awesome great-great-great-grandma.

I have a simple question I would like to ask everyone as a part of this collection of stories. It would mean a lot to me if you can write me back with your response.

My favorite thing about Po Po is _______________________.

Your answer can be 1 word short or 50 pages long, in Chinese or English.

Thanks so much!

Love, Benita
