surprised by kindness

Sad but I have trained myself not to expect anything in order not to be disappointed.  Today, though, I was surprised by an act of kindness.  The grandmother of one of the kids I teach in the gated community gave me a Christmas present beautifully wrapped up.  The little girl straight after the lesson presented me with a heart shaped glass container with a plant and she had placed two reindeers in the soil.  I was very touched.  I didn’t think I would get any presents this Christmas.
