Things That Make You Smile

| | Comments (5)

Back in 2004 I got to spend my birthday in Germany and it was awesome. Grant arrived that day and we had a wonderful time taking in the sights. I happened to be there on a business trip and my colleagues discovered what day my birthday was. So of course I had many of them wish me a happy day. The funny thing is, one of the guys, who I actually rarely get to work with (we're in the same large department, but our functions don't overlap much), has emailed me to wish me a happy birthday every year since. I'm guessing he's got it programmed into his calendar, but still, the fact that he takes the time to drop me a note every year for 4 years makes me smile. It's these little gestures of human kindness and interaction that mean the most really. I'll take a heartfelt card or email or even IM over a gift any day.

So yay, what a great way to start out my birthday! We'll see what surprises Grant has in store for me later today. Stay tuned!
