29 Gifts, Day Twenty Three: Birthday Smiles

May 23rd, 2011

Today I had another one of those “gift-giving opportunities will present themselves if only you keep your eyes open” moments.  I went into the day with no plan as to what I might give as my gift for the day…

…and what do you know?  Yesterday was my co-worker Pat’s birthday. 

Pat is a fabulous woman about my mother’s age who works in our finance office.  She’s a surrogate momma-at-work and we swap baby stories because she’s got a grandson she adores and spends a lot of time with.  She reads the blog (hi, Pat!) and always has such nice things to say about it.

So today, it gave me great joy to pop out and pick up a birthday card for this lovely lady.  Happy Birthday, Pat!
