She opened the package with excitement in her eyes.
Any child is excited to receive good old fashioned snail-mail, but a package — and from great grandma? This promised to be special.
Tearing open the paper, she found no disappointment. Pink, sparkles, a princess crown! But this was no ordinary princess gift — this was her first devotional, one of her very own.
