Thoughtful

I have a friend from school who is just really thoughtful. Every so often, I receive an email from her asking how I am doing. When I miss class for Jewish holidays, she gives me a copy of notes and remembers to ask how my holiday was. We once bonded over lipstick. We use the same brand but different colors. She told me how the drugstore near her often has buy 1, get 1 free sales. She asked me what color I use so that if she sees the sale, she can pick some up for me. Well, that's exactly what happened a couple weeks ago. She saw the sale, remembered my shade, and got me my lipstick. She's now traveling into the city to take care of a few things, and she made sure to contact me so that she will get to give me the lipstick. And she offered to treat me to Starbucks. It's a small thing, but it means a lot.
