We have a friend "Mo" who lives in California. She's the Mom of good friends from church and, for all intents and purposes, she has adopted us as her own. Within the last week, we have received two care packages from her. The first one was amazing with too many contents to even list. The second one - which came today - included a Build-a-Bear for each girl. Mia's teddy had a "U.S.A." shirt on and spectacles to celebrate both her finalized citizenship and the fact that she gets to wear glasses soon. And Hadley got her own shades along with her teddy since her older sisters were previously given their own pair in an earlier gift barrage.
It's difficult to understand such kindness. So we don't try. Instead, we just use it to blackmail our own parents. We tell tell them things like, "Hey, we don't mean to pressue ya or anything but Mo just sent us another package. Just thought you'd like to know..." It seems to work.
Thank you, Mo! We really don't know how to thank you for your thoughtful gifts and generosity.
