Wonderful Wednesday Surprise


I wish you a Wonderful Wednesday!

I was sitting quietly reading friendly posts
When my dog, TazE, jumped like she heard a ghost.
The FedEx truck had just left our house –
The driver crept in our entry as quiet as a mouse.
Before I could get to the door, he was gone.
He left a box with a basket – no name upon.

Inside a note said “Thank you, Bob & Jan”
But no greeting or signature of woman or man.
The return address was Jorge Garcia of Amigo Foods.
A clue might be Florida – It’s where I know a couple of dudes.
So, Sofia, might this have been from you?
The place where Vanessa & Federico live is a little clue.

Sofia in Palisades

If it is you, then here’s a return of Thanks…
But, I hope you let us know so we can fill in the blanks!
The card should have acknowledged who
The box was from – so I could appropriate thank you!

It’s a beautiful Wednesday here, Blogging friends.
I hope your day is going well, too, and transcends
All your expectations. Pen on… read on… live and play!
Wrap your arms around someone and hang tight today.

Listen for the FedEx truck or mailman
He/She may deliver a basket to you from a fan!

See you tomorrow! Pexels.com

Gift from the Heart

The best kind of gift
Is the unexpected one
The gift from the heart

 

The Givers

It was Mother’s Day weekend. I went into Bozeman, our nearest city, to do a little shopping, get my nails done, and run a few errands.

After dear Jayson finished my manicure, while I was sitting there letting my nails dry, he and his adorable wife, Hannah (who is a pedicure expert), went into the back room. They came out wearing great big grins and carrying a gorgeous orchid plant and card.

“Happy Mother’s Day,” they said, as they handed the card and plant to me.

What a sweet, unexpected gift! The orchid sits on my kitchen counter… a daily reminder of these two lovely people.

Another time a “Gift from the Heart” was received totally unexpected was when my former kindergarten student – from 1962 – came to visit us.  Ty (he was so adorable, I named my son – born in 1965, after him) came to Montana from California with his wife, Roxanne. Can you imagine the joy that brought us?

I can’t think of a gift more precious than a visit from a former student! The gift of your presence, your time… So heartfelt!

Have you revisited a teacher who impacted your life? You should try it. Believe me, it is indescribably wonderful!!

Have you been given a gift from the heart? One that was totally unexpected?

Or have you given one to somebody “just because”??

Tell me about it!

See you tomorrow.

 

Have You Been Surprised Lately?


Have You Been Surprised Lately?

I posted this morning my tribute to Bob,
My husband of   56  1/2  years,
Who just celebrated his 80th.
You saw him with his giant card, right?

What I didn’t show you was the
Surprise he experienced in the morning
When he was outside with our son, grandson & Kyle
washing our mud-infested Montana car…

Watch!!

 

That’s DeAna, our daughter, who surprised him
(obviously)
By arriving with her BFF, Elaina, to say,
“Happy Birthday, Daddy!”

DeAna lives in Switzerland.
Elaina lives in Maryland.
We live in Montana.
We’re visiting our son & family in California.

The joy was – as is – overwhelming!
Can you feel it?
Have you been surprised lately?
Tell me about it!
