Care Package

Monday, February 11, 2008
I wanted to take a minute to publicly thank my church, Westminster Presbyterian Church, for the Valentine's Day care package they sent me. You see, one of the groups at my church has made it their annual mission to send little care packages to all the church's students that are away at college - at least, all the ones they can track down. As I'm currently a student, I find this gesture to be meaningful and heartwarming (as I did when I received them as an undergrad.)

The list of items in the package includes (but is not limited to):
  • Highlighters
  • Paper clips
  • Mint gum
  • A toothbrush and dental floss (actually a perennial favorite of mine!)
  • Pop-tarts
  • Tea bags
  • A couple inspirational messages
  • A beautiful Valentine's Day card
  • ... and more!
So let me say "Thank You!" publicly. Your efforts are truly appreciated.

I spoke with Mom last week and learned that Westminster was not planning to send a care package to me this year. She said something about being 26 years old and in my 9th year of college or something like that... I got confused. Anyway, I argued that I still needed one and also lobbied for you. You see, that's how brothers have to roll! How about those home-made cookies? Yum!
