F is for Family
The most important thing in life to me is family. I feel blessed each day to have my family and I am lucky to have married into another loving family.
Last Friday, Good Friday, I stood in my kitchen and noticed someone messing with our large, flower pots in front of the house. I peered through the blinds to take a better look. It was raining and a gentleman in a rain coat and a black and yellow checked scarf was transforming the gloomy, unplanted pots into a rainbow of colour. It was my father-in-law. I smiled, called my husband and headed outside. As I opened the front door, a single pink rose and a package of freshly made strawberry cake was placed on the step (undercover).
My mother-in-law, who was sitting in the car out of the rain, told me that sowing seeds or planting something new on Good Friday brings luck. I was so touched that they would do this for us. It brought a tear to my eye. I am so blessed to have incredibly lovely in-laws. I did ask about the strawberry cake and if there was some symbolic meaning to that – no, it’s just to eat and enjoy.
Has anyone done anything surprising and lovely for you recently?
