Today I was pleasantly surprised to receive a “late Christmas gift” from K. It was serendipitous really: I was stopping by to ask her if she could write a letter for recommendation for me and she said she’s been meaning to text me all day because she had something to give me. She presented me with a small package that had some small trinket toys for the boys, some home-made cookies, and two books.
As you can probably imagine, I was so unbelievably taken aback and shocked! She told me that she always appreciates my thoughtfulness and she feels bad that her gift is 6 weeks late. I told her that she didn’t need to get me a gift… She also said that I deserve treats every once in a while, and she suspects that no one leaves me treats. And OMG, the cookies were so good!!!
I have so much to do right now, but all I want to do is read these books; I know I will love them!
