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.
