For years the tradition at the office has been for agents to give the secretaries and workers a little something something at Christmas to thank them for their hard work through the year. When I worked at the front desk I remember the great feeling that I got when someone would 'spoil' me with a little something extra. A cold coke on a hot day, a hot cocoa on a cold day, a candy bar on a low energy day.... It just was that kick I'd need to get back in gear.
In the years since becoming an agent I've never forgotten that great feeling that comes with someone thinking 'specially of me' so I have tried to pay-it-back (or forward) to the girls that consistently take care of me.
My kids truly understand the reasons to take care of our secretaries when they dig into their sweet pomegranate treats. This morning was their first for the season and they have been begging for more since breakfast! We try to share a few during the season because they are so much fun to open and dig into. It's because of Steph (our secretary) that I even know about the sweet treasure. She showed me long ago why they are so awesome.
Before Steph showed me how to eat a pomegranate I never knew what they were and she let me in on her seasonal secret treasure. It quickly became my treat to deliver her one every year. This year was no exception! Yesterday on my way through the office I delivered the biggest most colorful pomegranate that I could find and her smile suggested that I may have hit the treat in the right place!
Pomegranates only come but one short season out of the year... and though spendy we enjoy a few of the sweet treats because they are so much fun! And, buying one for Steph is worth the effort!
Having traditions like this really make our house feel like home. It takes that which we live in have a happy memory.... a treasure to return to! I'd love to hear your holiday traditions as well.
