Simply Touched

Sometimes I am simply touched by the thoughtfulness of others. Most times, when I don't think someone is noticing, they are, and they know me better than I think.

Two of the professors that I work for went in together on a Christmas gift for me. I thought it was very sweet, and extremely thoughtful of them.

The first gift was an embroidered lunch bag because I'm the girl in the office that always packs her lunch. This was special to me because it has my name spelled the right way. Not everyone spells my name with the "e" at the end of Anne.

I was informed that one of the professor's daughters wanted to put some homemade cookies inside the lunch bag. Because she knows that I wouldn't eat them, she filled it with bath stuff, lip gloss and 1 point Weight Watchers candies.

The stuffed bag.

The candies.

They also got me this amazing cookbook.

How cool is that?

I didn't realize that they paid so much attention that they picked up on the little things in my life that are not work-related. I was touched....simply touched. This gift took some thought and effort, and I truly appreciate their kindness and generosity.

Question of the Day:
What's the most thoughtful gift you've ever received?

Until next time!
