A Google employee was just gifted an entire week off from work by his employers. Their generosity was motivated by a precious letter written to them by a little girl who missed her daddy.
“Dear google worker,” she wrote. “Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off. Like can he get a day off on wednesday. Because daddy ONLY gets a day off on saturday.”
She added, “P. S. It is daddy’s BIRTHDAY! P.P.S. It is summer, you know.”
Of course, Google granted her wish. Who could say no to her sweet request? In fact, they decided to go above and beyond it.
“Thank you for your thoughtful note and request,” the company replied. “Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people across the globe.”
“On occasion of his Birthday, and recognizing the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time. Enjoy!”
It is encouraging to witness such generosity and kindness in today’s society. This story is one with a happy ending, with a father who owes his daughter much thanks for this pleasantly unexpected summer vacation with his family.
