Silken smiles

I am smiling today because I was given a beautiful gift. But the smile is less about the gift and more about the reasoning behind it.

It came from a woman on my postgraduate course. And it came so out of the blue. She said it was just because I was so kind and helpful. That was it. It was just to say thank you for being kind and helpful.

It’s a lovely pink silk scarf from the south of China and is absolutely lovely. It really is.

I’ve been smiling today because I was given a beautiful gift – the gift of remembering that people are kind and generous. The gift of friendship.
