Yesterday was my friend Carlos’s birthday. I forgot about it until about 5pm. So tonight I am making him his favorite dinner: homemade chicken mole, Mexican rice, black beans, and fresh corn tortillas. The aromas in my house are fabulous! Dinner will be ready at 9 after he closes his shop.
Doing little things like making a nice dinner for a friend is important. It lets them know that you really care and are glad they are in your lives. I mean it is nice to get a card and a gift. But I prefer when someone does something generous.
My last birthday my friend Jennifer gave me a card. I turned 42. In the card were listed the 42 reasons she loved me. They made me laugh and they made me cry. I won’t ever forget that gift. I know Carlos will be surprised that I made his favorite dinner. He always talks about mole but never gets it. Good mole is hard to find around her. I actually brought mine from Mexico the last time I went to visit my Mom. It is delicious.
What have you done special for your friend?
