The Box I Never Unpack

Most families I've talked to that move frequently have a box or two that never gets unpacked no matter how often or where they move. We all have a vague idea of what is in that box, but there's no sense of urgency. We probably won't need it, but we can't get rid of it. There's a feeling that the box we never unpack is important somehow.

A few days ago I was packing my basement up for remodeling project number 68,742 and I came across that box. It's pretty beat up by now. It's falling apart, to be honest. And since I only had a vague idea of what was in it, I figured I'd go through the never-unpacked box and sort through things.

Guess what I found...


The first bear Air Force Guy ever got me. And in the middle of a deployment, this was just the best thing I can think of to find. Pulling this bear out of the box and giving it a huge hug was almost like hugging my husband - and it felt good.

What's in your box that never gets unpacked?
