Treasure in the Mail!

 Two of our boxes arrived!!! I never thought when I packed these 1 1/2 months ago that it would be this long before I saw them again, but it turns out shipping things overseas requires a lot of documentation. ;) Many thanks to Ryan's parents for figuring it out and sending them to us!

The other 18 boxes are still in processing, as customs needed more clarification. Hopefully we'll get them soon.

I found a dish towel I used as padding, and did a dance and sang the "Hallelujah Chorus." I never knew a towel would bring me such joy, but when the laundry you did three days ago still isn't dry because of the rain and all of yours are now dirty and wet... It's a cause to rejoice. :)

I had been noticing Hadassah's hair getting longer, so was excited to discover the teeny bow barrettes her cousin Sara picked out for her in the box. Somehow Hadassah just looks older with her hair pinned back. :)

Thanking God for His blessings!

    Mail is true treasure. I know because I have many pen pals. And then the simplest things can be the most treasured.
