Aw, You Shouldn't Have...
...but we're ever so glad you did! I want to throw out a public THANK YOU to Garden of Life, the company founded by Jordan Rubin. Our friend Christine was concerned about our maladjustment to the food and water here, and contacted them to ask if they could recommend a supplement. She described our situation, and they GIFTED US with a box full of vitamins and supplements for the whole family. What a blessing!
Christine went to the trouble of shipping it all to us, along with some letters to the girls (which they were very excited about), POP-TARTS (hallelujah!!), kool-aid, and grits. Ah, yeah, it's gonna be a southern feast around here! I'm trying to hold back and not eat breakfast at every meal. My mom also sent an unexpected box of pop-tarts and grits, which oddly enough, arrived the same day. It was quite a celebration here in the Hagerman house. Funny how much the "little things" mean.
Christine and family sent along some books--Christian living books for us in English and children's stories for the library we're beginning of Spanish books. Amber's already read through one of the English books, and we have made plans on how to use the others. My mom sent CD's of our state convention so we can hear some of the goings-on in our neck of the woods. We had a storm that dropped the temperature today, so it's felt a little like Christmas in October here... Thanks, y'all!
