A Little Pick-Up

I'm putting together a care package for the military husband of one of my previous students. I have chap stick, pistachios (his favorite type of nut), some cheese/crackers, gum, a few paperback books, and a few other items, ready to put in the mail tomorrow. I thought I would include a couple of cards for him to mail to his lovely wife Kayla.
