I always say that I don’t like surprises. But maybe I do. It’s always the surprises that make me warm and tingly and provide a hug for my soul.
When I was studying abroad, my dad surprised me one afternoon with a phone calling telling me he would be there for my birthday. Warm and tingly.
Today I got a call from my mom telling my she would be in San Antonio in an hour, and could I have coffee with her. Why of course! Warm and tingly.
After a particularly long and stressful week, having a coffee break with my mom was just what I needed. I left feeling refreshed and joyful. So today, I am thankful for Fridays, surprises, and my family.
