After a very long day,

I walked into a dark house,

my family already asleep,

and discovered a special delivery:

flowers from a dear friend

who just wanted me

to take time to celebrate me.

They weren’t for an anniversary,

a death, a birth…

but simply for me.

What an amazing feeling.

And a wonderful reminder

that there’s no need to wait

for a special occasion

to grace a close friend or loved one

with a surprise gift.

In fact, if it appears out of the blue,

it will be all the more meaningful.

Trust me – I now know!
