A Gift of a Rose

For some reason we were talking birthdays in class – maybe because there are a number of birthdays happening in the next few weeks. One of my students (whom I have known for a number of years), asked me when my birthday was. He was very upset that he had missed it as he had planned on giving me a gift. He must have expressed his disappointment at home because, a few days later, he gave me the gift of a rose for my birthday.

I could not help but smile when I received his gift. He was grinning from ear to ear and was so happy to see that I was pleased with the rose. And me? The gesture had certainly made my day – and is still making me smile when I look at the rose placed on my side table.

What is the sweetest gift you have received?
