A bit thank you to Eleen! Today my daughter and her classmates received the beautiful letter you sent all the way from South Africa to California, USA. This was the first actual letter to make it to her school, and I was lucky enough to be volunteering in the class today when the teacher shared the letter with the class! Even I learned some things I didn't know. My daughter got to stand in front of the class and point out South Africa, and I know she was simply thrilled (as was i). She really loved the Christmas card you sent. We did do a Google search on the message you sent to the teacher, and this is what it said: "Teachers who inspire learners know that teaching is like cultivating a garden and that those who want nothing to do with thorns, never should attempt to pick the flowers."

Thanks, again, Eleen, for sharing your beautiful country with my daughter's second grade class. I plan to put your letter and things in a scrapbook for my daughter to keep and treasure. You really made today special. Big hugs!! Denise
