It's fun to do the unexpected.
It's even more fun to do it when you don't expect anything in return.
It's the best to see the reaction on the other person's face.
That happened today. I got home from school before Jack (my husband) did, and I knew his plan would be to scoop the 3-4 inches of snow that accumulated during the day while we were at work.
So, I rushed inside, changed clothes, and started shoveling before he arrived. I finished our sidewalks and was just starting on the driveway when he drove up.
The look on his face said everything.
You see, a person doesn't have to say a word and you just know that he/she appreciates what you've done. My goal was to finish before he got home, and I was a little bummed about that. I did get the better end of the deal though. I got to see the face of someone who genuinely appreciated being on the receiving end of the unexpected.
I think it's important to do that as often as we can. When we see a need or can do something out of the blue, instead of thinking about it, it's one of those times we need to embrace the opportunity of spontaneity and do it.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
