An Unexpected Gift
I could say these tulips were from my garden, but I would be lying. They were an unexpected gift from friends we had over for dinner the other night. They brought wine and flowers! Talk about great dinner guests! It was so nice to receive these lovely spring beauties. It had been a busy week and it gets a little crazy sometimes, and I get a little stressed out! But then someone does something so nice that it makes me just stop and think.... and then smell the roses, or in this case tulips!
It got me thinking about how even something small like having someone hold a door for you, or getting a grocery item from a top shelf for that elderly lady in the store, can change both your days. A simple act of kindness can be an unexpected gift! Thank you my friend and to all those who give the unexpected gift, no matter what it is.
Has anyone recently given or received an unexpected gift that brightened your day?
