Sometimes the surprises we receive make life even more wonderful than it already is.
When the doorbell rang in the middle of a busy afternoon, I wondered who it could be.
It was a dear young mother with her two kids.
They all had smiles on their faces and gifts in their hands.
The young mom told me she received help from me in past years and now it was time to pay it forward.
The very thought of that gesture made my eyes fill with tears and my heart with deep gratitude.
This family does not have a lot of money but they brought a precious "baby" daffodil plant, two garden markers and even a hummingbird feeder!
The lovely "daffodillies" joined yellow tulips given by another friend!
That visit definitely made it into a gratitude journal for that day's entry.
The sweetness of friendship, giving, receiving, and loving never cease to amaze and to bring meaning to each and every day of life.
