Dear Em --

For your 10th birthday, Mommy and I decided to buy you this suitcase. We know your love of traveling, how you love hotels, of the curiosity you have for seeing new places. And of course, like most of us, you love your stuff. A life of adventure begins with luggage.

The suitcase is kind of a symbol for your life - your care and compassion for the hurting and lost might require you to pack up your stuff and go to them. Your life might be meant to be on the move. God's plans for you might require you to leave home every once in a while. Your heart already goes - this just lets you bring some stuff with it.

We'll be okay with that. Just remember to visit us when you can and bring your dogs to see us but not to stay with us.
