    All Aboard the Polar Express.... with Jutka


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sunethra says, 'I love the Polar Express, and since my friend, Jutka, knows that I love trains and decorate for Christmas, and was talking about them non stop to her, she has sent it to me as a surprise gift. My favourite thing about her friendship is her genuine love and care for others, gentleness, and kindness, and beauty shine out of her through emails to me.'
    - Cortnee H, CNN iReport producer

    Today I had a surprise gift from my fellow iReporter and good friend  Jutka Emoke Barabas, it was the Polar Express all the way from Honolulu,  Hawaii  as well as puppy toys for ole smokes.  These photos have not got uploaded though, as well as the Polar Express Video.


    I came  to know Jutka early this year, and I am extremely grateful to have met  such kind hearted, and gentle person. In spite of her being unwell, she  took all the trouble to lug this huge box to the post office much to the  annoyance of a postal worker there, who said the box was too large to be  posted, so then she went and ranscaked a dumpster and found the appropriate box  to fit the train set in it.


    I really do not know what I am to say,  to  this sweet soul who is always  caring and sharing with others around  her.  She has also sent me a Hawaii Five O Tshirt and a signed photo of  the most recent cast of the Hawaii Five O, she has done so much - and I  am appreciative and grateful for her thoughtfullness.


    I  do hope that she gets well soon, and will be back home in no time.  I  am going to miss her very much once she starts her travels abroad.


    Thanks a billion once again Jutka.
