I was thrilled to once again join a Sister Shoebox Swap hosted by Carrie and her sister Monica. These two young mothers have been an encouragement to me. Sometimes I worry about the state of young families and am saddened to see so many moms of young children anxious to flee their home for the workplace. (and yes, I know for some it is necessary, but that's a post for another day)
Carrie and Monica are two young women who have taken on the challenge of making their family their career and ministry and I am heartened to watch them grow as they post on their blogs.
I was also blessed to be given their mother as my swap partner. From the short emails we shared, I sense that she is a sweet, quiet soul. Here are a few pictures of what she sent in my swap package.
The cute metal box contains a christmas votive candle. There was a cd of christmas music, a christmas towel, a couple of little Pampered Chef cookbooks, a handmade tree, some gingerbread tea and a Mary Engelbreit bookmark. (I wonder how she knew I love Mary?)
