Today, I am grateful for surprises.

Well.  Pleasant ones.

Life seems to be full of bad surprises: you car won’t start, someone close to you (or you) lost their job, your partner isn’t who you thought they were, you got passed over for that promotion or award, a good friend got cancer, a family member died,  any number of unpleasant and completely unexpected occurrences could be coming your way right now.  And, they tend to be BIG BAD surprises at that.

So when the small, happy surprises come, that makes them all the more precious.

And no, in case you were wondering, I do NOT intend to tell what inspired this post right now.  Guess away people, but the best part of surprises is keeping them to yourself for a little while.
