About ten years ago, I tracked down and got in touch with my teacher from the second grade. She was truly an angel to me.
I've stayed with her a bunch of times while visiting out in Seattle. She is a master gardener, so her house is surrounded by beauty. One time while I was there, she let me harvest a whole bunch of lavender.
For my birthday this year, she sent a care package. There were crayons with a note that said "These are for your colorful creative self." There was a chocolate bar that said "This is for your sweet self." And there's a puzzle I have to put together that has a birthday message on it.
I just love these gifts with symbolism and thought behind them!
