Dear Little Red Scarf,
How are you doing? I had been thinking of writing to you long ago, but I did not send out any words. For I wanted to describe my living situation as more as possible to you.
Today is September 6, 2015 and I still remember I was sent to operations on September 5 last year. 367 days have been passed so far. I was recalling things last night when I laid in the bed. Apart from gratitude, there’s still gratitude.
I started to work on March 17 this year. I recovered well half year after the operation. I didn’t want to stay at home and started my accountant intern work. I learned new things every day and made new friends. Work is not busy and I just work 5 days a work. Sometimes, I went for work trips, but they were not long distance travels. I felt full of energy and I spent every day in happiness. On September 11, I would go to Beijing for a week for a work trip.
I changed a lot physically and mentally. I do exercises every day which could make me recover better. I go to work by battery bike every day. I am in good health.
My attitude became positive. I started to learn to communicate with more persons. I was not as shy as before. I started to learn make-up and E-business. I learned many things that I had not known before. It is a whole new world before me. I enjoy to be living inside very much.
During the year, I felt uncomfortable sometimes, but they were very small influences. I was adopting to live with my heart valve which had not been quite familiar with me, I guess. I will take care of it carefully and we will be good partners.
I am very grateful for the help from Mr. and Mrs. Zhao’s Foundation, which gave me an opportunity to be reborn. Whenever I thought of it, my eyes would be filled with tears. I also thank Yunyun who encouraged and comforted me when I was lying in the ward. I want to be a person as gentle and loving as you.
During the year, I want to thank all of you.
