Secret Box Stories

Messages in a box
It’s hard to know what to do when a family member or friend is sick. You want to help, but sometimes you’re just not sure how. When a close friend of mine was sick with cancer, I came up with a unique idea. I bought pistachios still in the shell and wrote messages of support and encouragement on the shell using a gel pen. I put the pistachios in a secret box and gave them to her along with a card. I hope, in some way, they helped her through that difficult time.
