Red face I feel like crying - wonderful people

One of the professors that I supervise examinations for overheard me talking to a friend about how annoyed that I am that it's winter and that I have to stop doing my walks until:

a. it warms up considerably
b. I'm healthier (I am currently suffering from bronchitis).

I was saying that we were going to be going out to buy an elliptical over the weekend, that it might break us - but that if we don't get it - we'll keep making excuses not to.

So while it's quiet, Abdel (the professor... a real charmer at 80 years old) brings me an envelope with $50 and says that that I am such a nice person and that I deserve a healthier life. He's proud of how I have changed things and that he would like to help out with the purchase of the elliptical.

I told him I couldn't possibly take it, and he says "this is from one friend to another. You are like a daughter to me, you are so kind and you deserve the help".

I almost cried

Wow, that really makes me feel better about people and that there are truly nice people out there. The past couple of days I've had nothing but rude encounters with strangers despite me trying my best to be polite. Then when I was polite to them they acted surprised..
