I came in at work this Monday morning and I couldn't help it but have a BIG smile on my face. There was this amazing multi-color rose arrangement waiting for me on my desk. I knew about it because last Thursday I got a phone call from the inter-office mail center to go and pick up a flower delivery I received. On the way there, I started thinking of the day... June 5th, first Thursday of month of June, etc but nothing came to mind that might be worth celebrated with a flower arrangement. Am I missing out something??
I thought it was my dear hubby surprising me with something. He did ask for my work address a couple of months ago, after all. I signed up for the box, and curiously opened the card. It touched my heart to read this: "We love you! Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter-in-law. Wendy and Barry." I knew this already, but I truly have the best in-laws I could have asked for.
I want to think of myself as being a giver more than a receiver but my in-laws gesture made me realize two things: once in a while it's great to be at the other end and receive and secondly it's even better to receive (or give) when there is no particular reason. That one simple explanation 'just because' is so refreshing to hear sometimes.
I am on a look-out for a 'just because' good deed to do!
