I had someone, a colleague, hand me a crinkly bag today filled with an assortment of items. When I asked what was the occasion, she shrugged her shoulders, and said, “No reason. I just thought you would like them.”
She gave me two history books, and a novel that she enjoyed. Also in the package were a duct tape wallet that she had made. Inside it she tucked some funny notes. She included some candy, marshmallows,and chocolate, a small stuffed bear, and a thinking of you card.
It was extremely thoughtful, especially the thank you note she wrote for something I consider to be part of my job. I am not used to be thanked, so I was flattered, and I thanked her, for her thoughtfulness. I am thankful I have people like her around me. 🙂
