Stories of Kindness from Around the World

From My Home To Their Lunch Hour


--by Aurelia, posted Jul 31, 2008

I am lucky enough to live close enough to my office that I can go home for lunch. My two girlfriends at work can't leave their desks during the lunch hour and usually bring their lunches to work each day.

When I return back to work after lunch, I usually bring a little treat for them from home.  Whether it is an orange, pretzels, or cookies and sometimes even warm tea!  They never expect me to do this, but have really big smiles on their faces when I bring exactly what they're craving!

I love to make them smile and to share what yummies I have at home.

Anyway...just a thought..in the meantime, what you do means ALOT to your friends there at work...You are WONDERFUL! Nothing I haven't told you before....:}

But, it can really make them Happier about their day and will make them always feel that there is always someone waiting and thinking about them all the time. Thank You for doing that for Your friend. I hope they always enjoy what You give them. Keep It Up...!!!
