Ultimate Gift

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
-Aesop, “The Lion and the Mouse”

On my birthday, the neighborhood Schwan’s guy stopped by my house and overheard a phone message I was playing upstairs on the speaker option.  He discovered I shared my birthday with Valentine’s day and asked me, “What’s your favorite ice cream?” On the spot I answered, “Anything gooey, carameley, chocolatey with nuts."  He offered Pecan Praline, which I couldn’t turn down, as he ran out to his truck to bring back a half gallon container as an impromptu birthday present.  As he left I told him he had made my night.  The kindness he offered, without knowing the secrets of my life, was an ultimate birthday gift.
