I like surprises. I have never thought of myself as one to like surprises, because I like being in control, and knowing exactly what is going to happen. But then I got surprised, for my birthday. A handful of people who I was not expecting to see, including two who had to drive for hours to see me surprised me.
Seeing their faces was wonderful, and knowing that they came as a gift for me was even better. I don’t typically like for people to go out of their way for me, but for this, I was so grateful. And now I know. Surprises can be really, really good.
