A Pleasant Surprise

This summer while attending a picnic celebrating a cousin's birthday, I was chatting with my sister, Kass. It was getting near the end of the day, and she had reached down and picked up her purse. It was such a cute red purse that I immediately commented on it. Without even pausing, she asked me if I would like to have it. I really didn't quite know what to say. I have never in my life (and probably never will again) have someone offer me their purse. She told me that when she had originally purchased it, she had thought of me. But that is just what kind of person Kass is. Extremely generous and thoughtful. So at the end of the day, Kass went home with her belongings in a brown paper bag, while I went home with a cute new red purse. I thought that because of the unusual nature of the gift, a special thank you was in order. I traced out a purse design on cardstock, decorated it with glitter, and wrote the thank you note inside. Now every time I pick up my purse I think of Kass, and her kindness. She's the best. Thanks, Kass!
