I received a gift
of an experience.
I was surprised.
I did not anticipate it or plan it.
While thrilled at the opportunity, I have my own opinions as to how things might go.
But this was a gift
from the heart.
So I did not offer any opinions....
And praise for a job well executed.
I really had a wonderful time... and while I wrestled with my bleeding tongue [from all the things I did NOT say]
I have to admit that I totally LOVEd
the intense joy this person experienced
simply because all I offered was thanks
The experience bonded us both in a wonderful way :-)
