Fortunes for my sister

Emily Yamasaki

Fortunes for my sister, Dr. Tsai
Believe that this too shall pass.
Order in tonight, you deserve it.
Always add guacamole for extra charge – worth it.
Life is full of challenges, you got this.
You are an amazing doctor, but an even more amazing sister.
Don’t worry, your patients can feel your kindness from just your eyes.
Be on the lookout for care packages.
May your coffee be as strong as your gown and mask today.
Never forget: you were born for this.
Self care. Do it. I don’t mean yoga – I mean cookies.
You are a hero – and not just to me.
