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…
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.
