Spirit of Giving

I love the surprise you are going to spring on me. And I won’t tell you that I already know it.

I’ve tracked your movement across the globe – your academic achievements, jobs, international assignments. 

I wanted to say I’m so proud of you. But something stopped me. I did not want to puncture the balloon.

I did not want to remind you that I once rescued you from a toxic home, and paid for your education. I don’t want you to be obliged.

Your achievements are yours and yours alone.

Glad to see you blossom in so many different ways…
