    I wish I could take credit for making it, but I just ordered the robe from Everlast. My roommate was the one nice enough to embroider it at NC State when she was a graduate student. I need to get a nice box now and then get it mailed

    Thought I would update and let everyone know Ill be sending out the robe the day after tomorrow. Ive got to write a message in the card, and Ill put all of the names of the contributors on it.

    here are the contributors

    Contributors:
    synnabun
    Katty52
    lillyfly
    Kasha
    rubyred
    handlem9z
    attyfan
    youngatheart
    Sharon


    AND I found the PERFECT card today to send with it. I was looking at the cards, and I thought "hmm, when I see the right card Ill know" and I did. Ill post a picture of the robe in the box, and the card I got, tomorrow. I positioned the robe, so that its was folded nicely and the letters/characters on the back of the robe, are the first thing you see when you open the box

    The saying on the card is this "What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us" and then its blank on the inside(which is good, because I may need plenty of room lol)

    I thought that saying fit Michelle perfectly.

    Thanks so much to everyone who helped with ideas, brainstorming and contributing money

    Ill also post the message im going to write in the card, tomorrow, so that I can get a little feedback before I send it off the next day. And to make sure its ok with everyone

    Indeed... the card sounds PERFECT! So you're sending it off? I guess there wouldn't be a better way to get it to MK at Nats. There's no guarantee you could get it in or even get MK's attention. Hmm.. Lovely none the less!

    Ok here's the letter I have. Any input is appreciated

    Dear Michelle

    Several of the MKF Forum members went together to get this boxing robe for you. We thought it would be something fun to send you, and it has meaning as well. The colors as Im sure youve noticed, are the colors of your dresses from last season, and also the Chinese colors.

    We wanted to put something special and unique on it, so we decided on your last name across the top, and Chinese characters beneath it. The characters that we chose, were those for Joy, Heart, and Passion. Joy for the Joy you exude on the ice, and the Joy you bring others with your beautiful skating. Heart for how you wear your heart on your sleeve when you are competing. And lastly Passion for the wonderful feeling and emotion you put into every performance.

    I was lucky that my roommate was a textiles student and also Chinese American. Her mother wrote the characters for us, and then my roommate used an embroidering machine to sew them onto the robe.

    Were all very excited and hope that the rest of the season is wonderful for you. Many of us are looking forward to seeing you at Nationals, and wish you the best of luck. Thank you for your beautiful skating and the Joy you bring so many of us. And thank you for being the person you are.

    Sincerely,
    Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what's right. ~Isaac Asimov

    Wonderful letter Krista !
    "To me, the most exquisite quality Michelle has to offer is that she's not afraid to skate with her heart and soul. This takes a great deal of courage and is very rare. It doesn't come simply from technique, but rather from the way a person handles everything in their life." Scott Williams 01/23/03

    I believe that this has even more significance now, given the events of the last few days. I'm sure that Michelle will be impressed, and grateful.

    You did MK proud!

    Krista, I am so glad that you sent this out before she announced her withdrawal from Nationals. This way she will know that it was a thought way before the injury and not something to cheer her up with.

    I think I asked somewhere else... but I don't remember where that was. Do you know if Michelle got it or not?

    I found the tracking number in our shipping department here at work, and the robe was delivered to Shep's Office. So we know it got there at least. I found the number to Shep's Office though, and will call to see if it was forwarded on.

    Am praying that this gets to her before she leaves for Italy. By the way, Krista, I just wanted to comment on the letter you composed to accompany the robe. Perfect! Just lovely.
