Receiving trophies are just like receiving gifts. You achieved something when you received awards and medals. You gained friends who treat you important when they give you gifts and remind you how special you are on every occasion.
For the last 2 days, I have received numbers of gifts from friends and officemates. They may not be too expensive but the thought that I am on their list is a big deal to me already. As we always say, it’s the thought that counts. And to me it does count a lot.
