I really liked those beans. The are pretty neat. But then again, I think in terms of something my T. could put on her shelf and keep there for years to come. I love things that symbolize the relationship. I've looked casually over the years for such a thing for the day I'm shopping for a good bye gift. I've seen a picture of an adult holding on to a child's hand. That reminds me of therapy. I gave my T. a darling figurine of a little girl a few years ago. She has it on her shelf. I like it there as it makes me feel like there is a part of me that is with her each day, my little girl inside. I took the little girl home a few weeks ago and told my T. she needed to hang out somewhere else. I was angry at the time. The following week I took her back and put her on the shelf. We talked about it. I said, this little girl is so adorable how could anyone hurt her? But it happens. As it happened to me. I didn't get the love and nurturing I needed as a child so I have lots of issues.
Maybe you could give her a stone for her garden that has something on it that would symbolize your work with her. I love rocks, stones or whatever.
I've always thought a Bonsni plant would be cool too. They last for years and symbolize growth, the growth you have made with your T. She could keep it in her office and it would remind her of you and it wouldn't take up much space. You could tell her that though you are leaving, you will continue to grow as this plant will continue to grow with the right care.
If I think of any other ideas I will let you know.
I know you want it to be just the right thing.
