Today at work I got the nicest note from a co-worker. It was a thank you for her birthday gift and the special thought I put into it. I gave her cash. Usually for someone you don't know that well it could be considered tacky. Not to her and I knew it wouldn't be. She's a single mom and when I was one I often got very lovely gifts. Many times my heart would break at the same time it overflowed with gratitude. I needed the money so so bad. And sometimes the gifts were dumb and I really cried.
