My youngest daughter is currently on a vacation without me. She is having a marvelous time, but we have never been apart for more than a couple of days. So I thought that perhaps a way to keep her from getting too homesick, I would put together a little box for her containing a note from me to open each morning when she wakes up. A pretty ribbon was tied around the envelopes, and little gifts were also included for her to open on various days. For the box I just used a colored video box that Michaels sells, and tied a brightly colored ribbon around it. Before she left, I secretly set the box on her bed in the travel trailer that she would be sleeping in. When she arrived at her first destination, she was very pleased when she found the box. Now I can feel like I am greeting her each morning with a cheerful word, and she can know that I am thinking of her. It kind of makes it seem like we aren't quite so far apart.
