Surprise!

30 01 2013

Don’t you just love it when you get something unexpected and good in the mail?

The last few weeks have been punctuated with happy little moments. I’ve received several beautiful birthday cards.  A care package filled with bud-laden branches waiting to be forced into blush-pink blooms arrived at my front door.  My mailbox has been graced with beautiful little works of art, sent to me from artisan colleagues who I admire and adore.

Isn’t that amazing?

Yes, but it shouldn’t be. Why do we sell our friends short?  Every day, we do little nice things for the people we love and respect.  How dare we be surprised that they are as kind and generous as we are???

Aha! I think I figured it out.  It’s amazing that others find us worthy of these gestures of friendship and affection.  Okay, go back and read the post “Mirror, Mirror” from two weeks ago, then wrap your head around the fact that you’re a damn fine person who deserves the cool friends you have.
