it is amazing how some people can surprise and others can disappoint. I was given an incredibly generous gift this afternoon, something that I did not at all expect but greatly appreciate. This person, I do not know her well, really did do a very kind thing. It really sucks though because instead of being grateful for this kindness, all I can think is what I will be expected to do in return. I don't want to volunteer anymore but I feel as if I accept this gift I will feel obligated to. How horrible? To not be able to accept a gift without thinking what I owe in return? Isn't that the whole point of a gift? If that is in fact what it is...? Ugh, stop.
