Surprise generates appreciation

Grace was just as excited about her surprise in her backpack as I thought she would be.

As I blogged about last week, Grace had been putting Halloween treats and a note in my lunch tote and making me smile in the process, and I decided to respond with the same kindness by surprising her with some gloves she was hoping to get for Christmas.

“Thank you”¬†was the first thing she said to me when I came home from work. She was so grateful and appreciative, and it was just the reaction I was hoping for. She loves them and has worn them every day since.

I thought I’d find another treat and a note in my lunch bag the next day or ones from the boys, with hopes that it would stir me to follow suit again, but that hasn’t happened yet.
