The Art of Thoughtful Giving

A friend came to visit us at the hospital and gave us the three best gifts ever.

First she handed me a roll of quarters.

A roll of quarters, for vending-machine or parking-meter moments.

Then she stuffed two five-dollar bills in my pocket, stepped waaaaay back, and waved off my objections.

Two five-dollar bills, because who can find an ATM in the midst of trauma?

The third gift:  showing up.

The three best gifts ever. Spread the word.
