Heart Smiles

Today I was reminded of what true un-conditional love looks and feels like. 

There should have been no way that my dearest, oldest friend – (who also happens to be my sis-in law) should know that I have had one yucky week. 

Here I was thinking I’d kept my stress and worry all to myself.

I had went out of my way to be my normal happy- go- lucky self when speaking in emails to the aforementioned lady.
So imagine my surprise when I got a brief email from her via Facebook letting me know she’d been thinking of me a lot the last couple of days and she wondered if I was sad or blue.

How did she know?

She asked me too if I’d received her smile. I erroneously thought she meant an e-card, which would have just made my day. Goodness, just reading her short email had me misty.

I doubled checked both email accounts. No e-card. Then it hit me, this is my BF we are dealing with here, she is a gift giver. I smile and run to the front door. Sure enough, while I’d been out grocery shopping a package had been delivered.

Here’s what was inside: 

My Heart Smiles

The note enclosed wished all of us a Happy Spring Day from all of them with lots of Love. 
 By now I am really crying because I can’t believe it. 

This woman’s heart is so full of love and caring that she would worry and concern herself about us, about ME on her birthday. 

Come to think of it, I shouldn't have been surprised at all.

When I texted her to jokingly ask her if she wasn’t the one that should be opening gifts. Her response was simple. 

I'll share the main sentiment: Her gift was in the giving.

That is what un-conditional love looks and feels like.
