The true story of a Missionary Mom:

See Sonja.

See Sonja pick up Sister Sheffer's new eyeglasses from the eye-doctor on her morning work break.

See Sonja pick up a small size box from the post office on her lunch break.

RUN SONJA RUN.


See Sonja pack the box on her afternoon work break.

See Sonja realize she doesn’t have packing tape.

See Sonja run to WalMart to buy packing tape.

SHOP SONJA SHOP


See Sonja tape the box (TAPE TAPE TAPE).

See Sonja put in the glasses. (PACK PACK PACK)

See Sonja puzzled that the glasses don’t fit (THINK THINK THINK)

SIGH SONJA SIGH.


See Sonja excited to get to send a BIGGER box.

See Sonja pick up a BIGGER BOX from the post office on her morning work break.

See Sonja realize there is a LOT more space to be filled in.

SIGH SONJA SIGH


See Sonja pick up a requested white tank top from the clothing store on her lunch break.

See Sonja buy Emily some peachie-o’s.

See Sonja buy Emily some chocolate.

SHOP SONJA SHOP


See Sonja pack the box on her afternoon work break.

See Sonja realize the box STILL has a ton of room.

See Sonja run to WalMart and buy a giant bottle of Nutella.

CRY SONJA CRY (at the price of Nutella!)


See Sonja pack the box on her morning work break.

See Sonja puzzled that the white tank top now has Nutella all over it.

See Sonja realize some little sibling in the night OPENED the giant Nutella and ate out of it.
