Well, today I received my first care package. It was from my family back home. I was very excited to say the least. My husband had to use his famous phrase with me, “now don’t pee your pants.”
My niece and nephew made me books that made me shed a few tears! I really miss those kids! The box was full of snacks, coloring books, colors, other books, and of course things that I forgot when I left home a few weeks ago.
I have sent care packages before but I have never received one until today. If you have never sent one I highly recommend that you do. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant just a little something. It can even just be a small note saying that you care and are thinking about them.
You never know how much that even the smallest little gesture can mean to someone. For me, getting the package was like getting a little piece from home. Home has a different meaning for me now than it did before I got married, but it still has a place in my heart to where my family is.
If you know someone who is off somewhere, whatever the circumstances, I highly recommend you send them something just to let them know you care. It can make the world of difference and bring joy to their day.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very happy with my husband and would not trade our marriage and time together for anything, but a part of me does miss people from back home. They are the people I am used to seeing all the time and I haven’t seen in weeks now. My husband is worth every second of this journey and I love him with all my heart!
This post is not very long. I just wanted to write y’all and hope that you can spread the love and send it out into the world!!! Love you all!!!
