Today you’re going to kiss spiderman, she said

She smiled and handed me an empty sugar bag. It’s like a fortune cookie sugar bag, I imagined. Sort of, she agreed.

“um dia dou um beijo a homen aranha”, said the paper bag in portuguese. “One day give spiderman a kiss”.
Maybe it’s the story she told me before, maybe it’s just the casual way in which the gift was given, or maybe it was just one of those sunny days. Maybe it’s her magic🙂

But this gift is one of the best I’ve received lately.

Which makes me think of gifts and what they were before they were mandatory for Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day etc. Gifts when they were simple and always from the heart. Never with a “reason”. Almost always surprising.

What is your favorite gift? 🙂
