Of all the months in the year, October is the one that triggers all my emotions and longings for home, family, friends, California, and pumpkin patches. It’s the one month that sets off the waterworks. This, compounded with the fact that my husband is away for a week only made things worse. So I can’t help but think God knew all this about me and scheduled the delivery of a care package to lift my spirit. I had been moping around all morning after waking up to another day without Matt when the front door buzzer rang. It was a Halloween/Thanksgiving care package from one of my best girl friends back home in Cali. Perfect timing as usual.
