I mentioned that we took smoked salmon to our friend who had surgery. They know that I’m the one who does almost all the cooking but Vince is the salmon smoker. He started it Friday and did everything except smoke it. Since he and Chad were out running around, he told me: Put it in the smoker at 1:00 p.m. and set it to 180. I’ll be back in time to do the rest. I did what I was told and he got back to finish it.
My friend sent me this text last night.
How nice was that note? When I do things for people, I do those things because I want to do them and not because I expect any kind of gratitude or acknowledgment but it is nice when I know it was appreciated and, in this case, since it was Vince who did most of the work, it was nice to share the note with him.
