My Profound Thoughts

Simple yet subtle.. Profoundly silly yet thought-provoking.. Sums up life..

An Early Birthday Surprise

#Lockdown2/Day 5:

I thought I am familiar with the handwriting on the envelope. When I opened it, tears blurred my vision. I know she cares about us, but this was indeed very thoughtful, far beyond all my expectations.


I know this year has been different than ever for everyone that belongs to the human race. Though many out there, are getting fed up working from home and all, (of course I haven’t walked in their shoes), I like to see it differently through my glasses, in a Nurse’s viewpoint.

It’s my week off from work. And today isn’t just another day, but the treat I give myself, for being diligent at work in these tough times. I love every second I spend in my couch doing nothing, recuperating and reviving my emotionally drained soul. I do take a break every now and then to recharge myself and keep me going.

Don’t take me wrong, I love my job. But sometimes I feel sad and helpless when I see the people I look after, longing for a hug from their sons /daughters /grandchildren; or just to hold their hands or at least to see their faces. I see before me a generation that survived the World War, getting crumbled, and hopeless. Still, I do try, to find and return their lost smiles.

And for myself, I decided to have a week off doing nothing.

Implies: a week full of writing, painting and movies.


So, today I have been watching all these Christmas movies in Netflix, full of Christmas surprises and Christmas miracles, and I didn’t expect a little surprise to be waiting for me at my door.

Yes, an early birthday wish from my manager at work. I can’t explain how delighted I felt reading the card; it really made my day. That was very thoughtful and it really counts.

Thank you dear boss for an early birthday surprise. That was awesome 🌟
