To start, there were other coworkers part of this story, but I'm going to highlight my coworker Chloe Kelsey.
On my birthday in 2018, I came into the office to work like any other day. I don't make anything special of my birthday normally, but that year Chloe and a few of my other coworkers surprised me on what was a normal Friday. The cake and card from everyone were great, as was the lunch afterwards.
It wasn't anything grandiose or spectacular, but that's what it needed to be and what I needed at the time. My coworkers, but Chloe especially, exemplified what a random act of kindness can be and what an impact it can have on someone.
