I went to do my volunteer ESL teaching tonight and I was - well, showered is the best word - with Valentine stuff.
One student, a widow who works a hard job in nursery, brought me balloons and chocolate. Another brought me a candy box with a ring inside (crystal, I think.)
And an unknown admirer left a very well-thought out bunch of things - a balloon in Spanish, a plant with tiny pink buds, a chocolate chip cookie from Starbucks (yum!) and a card signed "SA."
SA? Another tutor said, "Secret Admirer!"
I've never had one before, and it's funny because I've always wanted one on Valentine's Day.
I literally had no visibility behind me driving home because of the soft red glow of the balloons. I had to have help carrying everything upstairs.
It was so sweet, the only word I can think of is "touched."
Muchas gracias por todo :)
