I was walking around in my garden enjoying the variety of brightly colored flowers when my daughter appeared. She began to talk about what was troubling her, and my heart longed to help cheer her up.
Later that night when we called my daughter down for dinner, an unexpected surprise of red, purple, and gold balloons greeted her. Along with the balloons was a card that read, “There you go again … adding sunshine to my world and to God’s!” She smiled, turned to us with a confused look, then asked, “What are these for?” We replied, “Just because we think you’re awesome!”
After dinner she took her gift of love and disappeared upstairs. This was the bright spot she needed in her day, and it helped change things for her.
When is the last time you did something unexpected or received an unexpected surprise “just because?”
Giving and receiving gifts on special occasions such as birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, etc. are great. They are very special and meaningful, but there’s just something extra special about a gift out of the blue for just no reason other than appreciating the person and wanting them to know how much they are loved.
Get out there and show some love to someone in your life today by doing something special and unexpected. Not only will you bless them, but you will surely receive a blessing seeing their face light up!
