A Great Christmas Present
by Heather Gawlick
Yesterday, a dear friend of mine I have known for a long time gave me a beautiful Christmas gift.
I had missed his call and we were playing telephone tag. My initial reaction when we connected was it had to have something to do with dojo business. Nope. That had nothing to do with it.
He called to sing me a Christmas carol in a way only this man can.
He has an amazing, booming singing voice. It can carry soulful tunes for miles and through your very heart. I love it when he sings.
He called to sing a silly song and make me laugh. It worked. I smiled the rest of the day.
Thank you again. You are truly generous. I am very blessed to have you for my friend. It was the perfect Christmas present.
May all you out there in cyberspace have friends who love you for who you are and surprise you with gifts of love and joy.
Heather and Roy Gawlick love Aikido and have a passion for sharing it with others. They hope you'll catch the Aikido bug, too!
