The Gift of Care

Jake Blog Post 933 Views

There are many amazing aspects of Jamie’s personality. One that I am particularly fond of is her natural ability to care. She has many times selflessly dropped all other responsibility to care for me, loosing hours of sleep over things I do not deserve. Yet she finds great joy in caring for me, and I am very grateful for every bit of it.

After living in LA for about a month now and adjusting to buying my own food, I’ve quickly learned to not eat out very often. I’ve only had to visit the grocery store two or three times, but I’m starting to run out of my supply; that is, until I received a package today. Jamie decided to send my a care package filled with lots of goodies. I now have a resupply of oatmeal , a heart shaped container of Reese’s Pieces (which I have already consumed), a heart shaped container of bubble tape, 19 packages of single use coffee (no coffee pot required), french vanilla creamer (my favorite), three packages of popcorn, a little puppy dog, two cases of lip balm (made personally by her wonderful sister Stacy) a hand written love letter, and a mysterious wrapped gift complete with note card.

I’m not allowed to open the wrapped gift until Valentine’s Day; I’m very excited to find out what it is, and I’ll be sure to let you know what it is when the time has come.


I love my fiancée, and I miss her right now. A whole bunch.
