We do not look for reward....

An email, to let us know that the care parcels we send to our "Aussie Heroes" overseas have arrived, is basically all we ask.

... so you can imagine how absolutely thrilled (and humbled) I was, when I opened the mail yesterday to find...

A lovely handwritten postcard all the way from Afghanistan.  I just loved the 'correction' to the flags down on the bottom left hand corner.  You may not be able to notice it in the photo - the Stars & Stripes have been replaced by our own Aussie Flag!

And in the parcel were a couple of little gifts to say Thank you.  

I will treasure this.
