Love in a Box

So, last week Jacob and I experienced a first.

Our first care package in the mail! (Lest you think we are neglected, we've had visitors bring us a suitcase full of fun treats... this was just our first time to get it in the mail.) A team had come to serve at our foster home for a couple of weeks, and when they went home they prepared this for us!

It had lots of our favorite snacks in it, and a few surprises, too. Jacob and I went to the post office together, and waited with great anticipation for them to find our box. We sped home, opened it up, and have been enjoying its bounty since.

I know it probably seems silly, but it was just so heart-warming and encouraging to us to get a fun surprise in the mail. Thanks Terri! It's amazing how much love can fit in a box!

Having moved away from my family & friends for the first time last year - I can relate with loving the care packages!! Mail is just fun. period. especially when it isn't bills.
