But lately there has been an unexpected but delightful acknowledgment of going the extra mile so to speak. There was the gift of a beautiful necklace and scarf from a work trip to the developing world, steeped in meaning for the client but best of all accompanied by words from the heart written on a card. The next day another client I had not seen for many years gave me a sample of her knew product - beautiful, recyclable and artistic. Last week I was presented with a bag of spring greens freshly plucked from someone’s veggie patch, so vibrant and perfect.
There may be no more gifts again for many years and that is just fine. It really is the thought that counts.
Now to pay it forward. Is there someone you want to thank for taking a little extra care of you?
