I have a friend, my dearest friends, who surprises me with the unexpected.
She brings gifts for no reason … a sign of love that is totally unconditional. Yesterday she arrived with this little parcel – and no, it was not Valentine, that day had already passed. This was for no special reason, on a very regular day, a day that now she had made very special!
There are no expectations and no demands when I am treated in this loving way and I sense that the simple act of giving brings her tremendous pleasure and it also gives me a deep sense of being honoured – just for who I am.
I hope that I reflect the same sentiments back to her. Give an unexpected gift, surprise someone in your life. It need not be grandiose, something as simple as a card or a bag of popcorn, something that says “I was thinking of you”. Now that is a very happy thought.
