A couple of sweet co-workers took me out to lunch for my birthday. It was special and kind because I am not on the birthday list, and knowing that I was not at work on my birthday, they took me to lunch today. It was a very kind and generous act. I love being taken out to lunch but what I appreciated more than anything was the chance to form a friendship with two wonderful people that I do not work with on a daily basis. Our friendship was built on kindness and not forced upon us because we work in the same department.
