Tale of a Traveling Candle

A couple of years ago a friend, 
who happens to live in Missouri,
asked me to make a candle for a
couple that she knew.
She gave me the container and 
I did the custom order.
I never thought I 
would see the candle container again.

However, nearly a  year later this
container showed up again....
this time from the couple who had
received it as a gift.

They wanted it filled for my friend.
As a surprise.

I did that.
How very fun!

So....recently I received a call from
the original friend. She wanted to send
it back for a refill again.
This time it was going to the same
couple, but they now live in Georgia.

It is just so much fun being a part
of this game. I wonder how long it
will take for it to be returned to me
one more time........
and where it might go!

Oh, the life of a traveling candle.
Must be pretty cool!

When I read this, I thought about my homeschooling friend who lives in Missouri. Then I thought about her daughter Stacie, who recently moved to Georgia. I wonder if we have the same friends :-) Cute story of the traveling candle.
