A sincere gift from a young African security guard at the place I would help out at from time to time.
This one comes with a story,
he approached my mother to ask her what perfume I liked because he wants to buy me a gift. A friendship gift, "you know like friends day" he said " no don't worry it is not love" , . .he continued to explain " She was a friend to me, she always spoke kindly to me,she always was telling me that I must not worry when the other people were rude to me when I was doing my job" He chose the perfume himself, he said he didn't want to buy a chocolate,he said he didn't care how much the perfume is going to cost, he said he wanted a big present for me,
He called me his friend.
How taken back I was, I gave him a gift of kindness and he gave me a gift of humanity.
