I was sitting at my big desk today and noticed a car screech to a halt in front of my office building. Literally, it screeched to a halt. Moments later, the driver was standing at my building door with flowers. FLOWERS. Flowers for me! I don’t remember the last time someone delivered flowers to me and I couldn’t imagine who sent them. At first, I thought it was a delivery error, but my name was right there on the card. Turns out, one of the fabulous coaches I work with sent them because she’s super thoughtful. She’s also the one who taught me to be a teacher – we worked together for years and for those first two, I clung to her like a cape on a superhero.
Thank you, Friend, for brightening my day. These flowers will sit right next to me on my big desk reminding me of you and the importance of friendship. They’re right next to my thinking cap and my Pilates loop.
