So I seriously don’t get spoilt. I don’t have friends who buy/give me gifts or have a boyfriend who does. I don’t really have people in my life who do things for me just because……I know they are there for me if I need them but normally I would have to beg ask.  I on the other hand am a giver.  I will arrive at your house for dinner with a bag full of goodies (even if you told me to only bring myself), I will visit you and your newborn and come bearing gifts for you all as well as the siblings. I will arrange surprise parties, I will write you little notes, I will send you cupcakes just because it’s the first day of spring!!!  I will give you your favourite perfume just because…..I will send you flowers because I thought of you or buy you tickets to the theatre because I know you love the Nutcracker.  You know the usual…..but it is really very seldom that someone takes time to do something for me……. just because.  It’s a matter of making people a priority in my life while I know that partners, kids, work etc are their priorities.  Just different strokes for different folks.

So I am very shocked and surprised when I am spoilt……..also very grateful when it does happen.  Today was one of those days.  I went off to a meeting (yes can you believe a meeting on my third day back at the office) and when I got back this was waiting for me…

Gorgeous hey!!

Stunning!!!!  They are from my mom and dad.  It was a thank you for well basically being their sunshine child!!

Guess I was a little shocked
A better reaction

 I am blessed!!!  Spoil those you love even if it’s just making a cup of coffee because it really is the small things that matter.

This was taken after church on new years daddy was not feeling well but posed anyway!!!
