Our shipment arrived from Abu Dhabi to St. Charles. There are 32 boxes. Within these boxes is my mom’s wedding dress, our wedding china and crystal, Mark’s Johns Hopkins chair, our two souvenirs from Abu Dhabi (a clock w/ Arabic numerals and a kissing camel mirror), kitchen goodies, and our photos of our high school years and all twenty years of raising our kids.
Opening just one box brought joy, tears, gratitude, finality and friendship.
One down, 31 more to go.
