Yesterday my family received a wonderful surprise in the mail. It was a box full of precious treasures, from our daughter Erin - and it came all the way from China! She sent a special gift for everyone, and a letter explaining the significance of each. The gifts included a scarf for her grandmother, a jacket she had worn on the Great Wall for her cousin, and a beautiful silk tote for me. One of the most precious gifts in the box was a special letter she wrote for my husband, her father, Al. It was wonderful to receive these tokens, as they each carried so much love. In a way we felt we were experiencing part of her journey abroad, through these items she had thoughtfully gathered while in China. Erin is now in Uganda, click here for updates on her travel blog.
