An unexpected present
A big box arrived several days ago. That's not unusual, considering how much Amazon.com and others have come to love us during our preparations. However, this one was from a daughter. On opening it, a wonderful gift of love and remembrance tumbled out, a quilt with pieces representing each of the kids, handprints from all the grandkids (they sat still long enough to trace their hands?!) and outlines of Colombia, North Carolina and Peru.
We will truly treasure it! Meanwhile, we're about done digging through closets,
and getting the few little odds and ends we're bringing all ready to pack up and leave Raleigh in two days.
We sure appreciate the meals, the laughter and the opportunities to re-acquaint ourselves with good friends and family.
