Surprise text this morning! (not from Hank)

I woke up this morning to find a text that had been sent to me last night about 11:00 PM.  I didn't recognize the number, but saw it was an 801 area code, and figured it was from my sister in law, Karron.  I opened it up to find the following picture attached:
I LOVE it!  When I saw Hank was holding a package, I knew it had to have been Karron.  She'd mentioned that she was going to drop a package off for Hank yesterday...but then was puzzled how she had managed to get to actually see him.  I called her right after getting the text, and she said she hoped we'd gotten a picture.  It wasn't from her, though.  There is a man who works at the MTC that is a friend of her and her husband's, a former mission president, who loves to hand deliver packages to missionaries for families.  He also loves to take their picture, and send the picture to the families, so Karron gave him our cell phone in case he had a chance to take Hank's picture.  The caption underneath said: "Look at this good missionary!  He seems to be doing well!"  Made my DAY!!  I texted this man back (don't even know his name!) and thanked him, and he was so great, texted back, and said he was happy to help out the Jacksons. 

So here is Hank in the MTC.  Karron loaded the package full with snacks and treats.  She is a gem, and I couldn't thank her enough this morning!  What a great way to make him smile...and make us smile too!
