Gifts from home...

Today when I went to the Post Office, I was pleasantly surprised to find a note in our PO Box to inform us that there was a parcel awaiting our collection. RG and I couldn't wait to get home to open the parcel after picking up the rest of our mails.

Back home, we found a lovely pair of indian door hanging ornament in the parcel...a Deepavali gift sent to us by the very thoughtful ML (RG's sis) all the way from Singapore. We used to hang such ornaments back home especially during Deepavali.

This is the first year that we weren't celebrating Deepavali with ML and family and SV. The gift is a very special one as it not only brought a bit of home and our culture to us in the states...it also reminded us of all the happy times we spent together on every Deepavali.

Thanks ML for the lovely gift and the unique Halloween card too.
