Hopping With Gratitude

Yesterday I witnessed an act of kindness that brought tears to my eyes. One of the student workers in our office bought something pretty spectacular for another one of the students. The recipient lost her mother a few weeks ago, and she's been having a pretty rough semester, so it made this gesture seem even more grand.

Afterwards, she looked at me and said, "what do I do?" I told her that in these situations you just say "thank you." I came home and made this card for her to use to express her thanks if she so desires.
