Someone I know was going through a tough time and feeling pretty depressed.
I knew I couldn't fix her problems, but I wanted to send her something that might bring a little brightness to her day. So, I decided to get a little creative.
I bought a pinata and filled it with chocolates and little pieces of paper with jokes and uplifting messages on them
. I mailed it to her anonymously, including a little note saying that this was for her and not her children.
The note also instructed her that to hang it in her living room and wait for a day when she felt especially sad or angry. Then she was to grab a broom or a wooden spoon and whack it until all the little treats fell out.
I thought it was something a little different from your ordinary box of chocolates.
