There are simple things in life that a mother and daughter can do when they live so far away from each other. Now a days people are constantly texting to keep in touch. Some still call each other once a week or maybe twice a month. Others choose to Skype, Facetime or video chat, who knows what else is out there. Although my daughter and I do some of those, we play the Scavenger Hunt game. My daughter sends me a list of items she needs but can't find in the area where she lives. When I am out and about, I look for them and eventually get it. Sometimes I can find it the first try, others might take three different stores before finding them. Since I am retired, I have the time to do my hunt. The mission is usually possible to complete in a couple of weeks. The great part about her request is that she sends me very good details as well as photos or websites. Although I don't send her expensive stuff, it's the little things that count. Each package I send I would always try to add some small surprise that I think she will enjoy. Simple things and small items that provides happiness and excitement.
