Since my birthday was last month, and Christmas is still a couple of months away, I couldn't imagine what this could be about. As I looked from Sylvia, to Tootsie, and the others with a questioning expression, they said, "It's for you. Open it."
I removed the ribbon and this was what the box contained:
Two medals on ribbons! It was their way of congratulating me for persevering and losing 62 pounds! I thought that was the sweetest gesture ever!
I feel lucky to have such caring friends who are supporting me and cheering me on! I immediately put the "Way to Go" medal around my neck, and I plan to wear the "Great Job" medal to Thursday's class. What great gals they are. I love that I can call them my friends!
