I am supposed to be unpacking from my seven week trip to the United States, but instead I decided to log on to WordPress to close out my blog post, and now I am writing an entry. So much has transpired since my last post in 2011. Tomorrow is the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the one year anniversary of Malik and I entering into a PACS (or civil union) in France. I am still waiting for the renewal of my second visitor’s visa to be processed so that we can initiate the change in status of my visa to ”vie privée et familiale.” I continue to pray that in time, I will be working in France. I pray sooner, not months later. I have been in the French social security system for one year, and I am anxious to begin to contribute my fair share.

I have numerous blessings this year… my cancer is in remission, pilgrimages to the Motherhouse of the Sisters of Providence France and to the birthplace of St. Mother Théodore Guérin, unforgettable dining experiences with dear friends old and new, visits from and with family, friends and friends of friends, a century bike ride from Levallois to Honfleur, a Harley bike tour through Normandy and Brittany with my dear Rotarian friend Leon, frequent visits with Malik’s family, a seven week visit to the States to see family and friends, daily breakfast with Malik, riding on the scooter throughout Paris and our daily ritual of taking off our glasses and kissing each other’s eyes when we wake up and when he comes home from work. Life is good. Thank you God!

    Sounds as if everything is doing wonderfully for you Christi. We are the couple you met on the drive from CDG into Paris in October of 2010. You were just returning to Paris and you were settling into your 10×10 apartment in Montemarte. So great to hear you have found someone very special and that your health is fine. Sounds as if life is going so well for you.

    We hope to return to Paris this Spring and will write you when we decide on a date. Hopefully can meet you for a wine!

    Blessing to you for a Peaceful, Heathy, and Blessed Christmas and New Year!

    Colette and Andy Check
