A Spring Care Package

One afternoon this week I came home from errands to find a be-stickered package sitting on the cedar chest for me that the boys had brought in from the mail lady. Without even having to open it, I knew exactly who it was from and what it was - my sister and A Spring Care Package.

Years ago I used to struggle with the long winters of cabin fever with 3 babies. My sister called on one of those long February afternoons and asked how I was doing - she got an earful. A few days later she sent me A Spring Care Package - filled with goodies to brighten up my long winter. And so, though my babies aren't babies any more, J. sent me another surprise this week just for fun. And it made my day as bright as that day years ago.

She told me later that she had a great time putting it together and wrapping each item in spring-colored tissue and fabric. The Morning Dew candle was bought first and then the Key Lime Cheeseball Mix was what inspired her to put together another Care Package for me. Here's a list of all the goodies:

* Morning Dew candle
* Key Lime Cheeseball Mix
* Spring napkins with little peeps on them
* Two packs of Zinnia seeds to start in my greenhouse (All Summer Cutting Mix & Fruit Smoothies Mix)
* Garlic Herb Dip Mix
* Roll of Spring-Colored Ribbon
* Italian Herb Garden Mini-Greenhouse pack with Genovese Basil, Oregano & Italian Parsley

Thanks again, J. - I love it (and you!)

That was so sweet and thoughtful. The nicest thing I saw though was the closeness of two sisters. I pray my daughters (and sons too) have that closeness even after they leave our nest! It's a wonderful thing!!
