A beautiful art card, made by local (to our partner) artist, Shelia DeJohn. This photo does not do the print justice. And look at the tree branch holder they sent to display it in! (in a funny misinterpretation, we originally put the paper luminary in this holder. After Lesli mentioned that the holder was for the card, we realized that made much more sense.)
With wonderful timing, the post office delivered both packages on the same day, and we exchanged excited emails letting each other know. Each and every item included in the box we received was a delight. Some made with impressive handwork, some chosen with consideration and care, all reflective of a family so far away that seems to value the same things we do.
A thousand thanks to Lesli and her beautiful family!
