Care Packages

in Army, Q

Whenever I miss Q a lot , well that’s unfair to say since I miss him a lot everyday, but whenever I have the feeling in my heart that just aches, when I just want to be able to call or email or text and get a response, I decide to make a package or write a letter. Because then I can put all of my feelings and my love and sadness and missing into a letter or into something thoughtful.

Sunday was one of those days… so I went to Target and did this…

(yes the Chobani greek yogurt is for me… can’t ship yogurt to the desert unfortunately).

So I came home and started creating boxes. They have these great APO boxes that the Post Office provides that save about $2 a package. And when you send a package a week that all adds up.

*And I am going to split all this stuff into way more than 3 boxes, but had to spread it out in my room to see all the goodies I’m going to send.

So yes, after a shopping spree at Target and unpacking grocery bags and repacking boxes, I feel better. And miss him just as much, but the aching stops for just a few minutes and it feels better.

These care packages are beyond. I really think you need to bring one to work for me and Allie to show how much you care about our well-being. It’s necessary.
