Ms.Denise turned 62 and we celebrated her birthday at Work. Wednesday’s have become special for me these days as it is a chance to meet and greet Ms.Denise. She is a lovely woman who keeps our workplace clean and fresh with her weekly cleaning routine. She walks into office radiating love, positive energy and joy. She plays her kind of music in an otherwise quiet workplace while working. On the days she forgets her music player she would sing in her voice loud enough to entertain us all. I have always seen her speaking politely and softly to everyone. Throughout the day she would keep thanking Lord and would count her blessings. It is not that she had everything she ever desired. She appeared single and taking care of her daughter’s big family on her meagre earnings. She would visit now and then with her grandkids probably on days she is babysitting them. She was living a life of respect and gratitude a living example of my Guru’s teachings. In the initial days, I would just handover some goodies for her grandkids. Later I would quietly set aside one hour of my earnings every Wednesday and hand it over to her. I felt it is nothing, but then it would help her in some way to fulfil her responsibilities. Soon it was my last week at work and she overheard it from someone. She came silently from behind and hugged me, kissed me and blessed me. Her unexpected kind gesture made an indelible impression on me. Thanks to my Guruji for His grace that I was bestowed with that precious moment.
