A Few of My Favorite Things…

I had the most amazing Christmas and New Year’s break but I was completely floored by the gift that was waiting for me when I returned to Abuja.  I received my first care package through the US/Nigeria postal system. My friends, Jon and Liz Hoelter of Wisconsin, a few months ago asked for my address.  They told me that they wanted to send me a package of all my favorite things from home.  I was concerned that the package would never arrive but while I was on vacation, I got a message that a package had indeed arrived for me.  It was such a surprise – however, the day before I received the message from my office that the package arrived, Jon let the “cat out of the bag.” I didn’t have the heart to tell him that the package had not arrived but lo and behold, it was waiting on my desk!  I feel much loved…Thanks Jon, Liz, Emmy and Hansel!
