|This Looks like the Cake We Shared
Today we met as a staff to celebrate a birthday. It is one of my favorite things. We buy small gifts for the birthday “girl.” Or perhaps we pick out a great card. Then we share the cards and gifts with each other. We laughed together and had some delicious food. It was our newest employee’s birthday. Several times she said that she loved working here; she said that it didn’t feel like coming to work because it is such a positive place to work! I am thrilled! We have a cohesive, friendly staff.
The card I bought her read:
What I am filled with is the true joy of giving. As I have done many other years, I left my Christmas shopping until this week. Stores have run out of boxes and I may not have had the selection that you, “early-birds” had. But I am filled with peace and good will. I am filled with gratitude that I an buy things for people. I am filled with gratitude for the beautiful people in my life. Every gift I purchased, I imagine the recipient being delighted with it. I see their beautiful faces filled with love. Last week, I received a gift of home-made limoncello. The giver said, “The main ingredient is LOVE.” I know that is true.
And for all of you, whether or not you get a physical gift from me, please know that this blog is made with love! I am grateful for the gifts that each one of you brings by being in my life.
