I LOVE SURPRISES!
Okay, I do love surprises, but I very much dislike unpleasant surprises. Or sometimes unexpected surprises (is that an oxymoron?). Husband tells me I like surprises under very specific conditions, those conditions being that I need to know the basic parameters of the surprise before I’m “actually” surprised. I know. That sounds like a nightmare. Surprises with boundaries aren’t actually surprises at all, I fear. Ah, well.
I LOVE MOST SURPRISES!
This has been a very long week. It was a week that needed to wind up with a nice surprise. Somehow my mom must have anticipated this week, because over last weekend, she arranged to send me a present. Don’t you love how moms just know?!
Do you like surprises?

It’s simple. I like surprises from people who love me because they know me best. Not this: “Surprise, Mom, we’re all getting dressed up and taking you out to a fancy restaurant!” But this: “Surprise, Mom, we bought you an exotic chocolate bar and rented The Blair Witch Project!”
Aww, Nina is beautiful!
How fun–that sounds like my kind of surprise, too! xx
How lovely and thoughtful of your mother, Laura! Your Nina is simply beautiful, and I know this has been quite a week for you. We are expecting snow……that’s a surprise, too. Stay warm and happy.
“Lovely and thoughtful” is my mom, 24/7. Hope you get just enough snow to have some fun, Skye!
Although they don’t happen often, (nice) surprises for me make me feel quite humble and loved! You’ve had a rough week – so happy it ended with something fun 🙂
You always have such a sweet attitude, hon. And I’m glad the week ended on an upbeat note, too! xxL
