A gift arrived today in the mail. Addressed to me and in a protective black envelope.
All the way from Texas it says.
It was a pearl in a gold chain. It’s called the Grit necklace.
I never ordered it, nor knew they existed but yet here it is on my kitchen counter.
No note, no letter, nothing. Just the pearl on a gold necklace and a description of what it means.
Take a look;
Where is it from? The package says Texas. Who is it from, I have no idea.
It did make me smile, it did warm the heart. After all I am a teacher and we talk to the students about developing ‘grit’ developing ‘resilience’ and here I have something telling me that I have grit.
Things happen for a reason I suppose. I question that often these days. However, maybe I should look at this as a gift. A welcome surprise from someone unknown.
Thank you, whoever you are. It will be cherished and read over and over again.
