A random act of kindness

I was smacked with a random act of kindness yesterday and I'm still smiling.  Someone, not my husband, sent me flowers.  They are gorgeous and I'm thrilled.  Tulips just happen to be my favorite flower (I wrote this in the 100 things about me post.  see the tab ^).  The card does not have a name on it, so I'm guessing whoever sent the flowers wants me to guess who they are or remain anonymous (ok by me).  The card does say "Have a joyess day!"  (I'm not sure what to make of this.  did the sender mean "have a joyous day!" and the florist misspelled "joyous?"  or, did the sender mean "have a joyless day!" and the florist forgot the "l?")  These two options mean two completely different things and could slant my response to this random act as one of kindness to a random act of not quite as much kindness.  I'm going with kindness ('cause I like to stay positive.  I'm just like that).

My husband wishes it was he that sent the flowers, 'cause he said it was a good idea.  If anyone out there wants to own up to this lovely gesture, feel free to email me.  I'd love to say thank you, in person.  The rest of you can enjoy the image.  I think I may need to pay this random act of kindness forward.  It makes for good feelings and a happy day.

did you notice how I cleaned off my desk so the pic looked nice!
452.  generous people
453.  having flowers on my desk makes the work day so much nicer
454.  checking things off my "to do" list
455.  watching a movie of my choice with my son (he only said he was bored 4 times)
456.  knowing that the work week is half over 


  1. woohoo that is awesome...i am thinking it is a misspelling of got blessed today of my readers sent us a $40 dinner card since we were vacationing in their cool is that...smiles.

  2. Wow!  That is one grateful reader.  I'm guessing it wasn't anonymous.  I'm hoping I find out who sent them.  :)

  3. I wish I could take credit, but whoever did it, I'm sure meant JOYOUS! :)

  4. What a nice thing that happened to you.  Just lovely.  And I'm thinking they meant "joyous" and someone was spelling phonetically.  :)

    what fun for you

    and for the sender!!! Such a joyous thing to happen. Yes,  I think its a mis-spelling too

  6. I am visiting you from Lynn's blog - loved your answer to her.  And come to see you got flowers as a gift and beautiful ones too.  You must be a sweetheart like Lynn. sandie

  7.  I'm not going to find out who sent them  My friend in the mail room had the tracking number and called UPS and asked if they would tell them who the sender was.  UPS said they don't reveal that information to people, but if she wanted to hold they would call the sender and discover if the sender wanted them to reveal that information.  When UPS got back to my friend in the mail room, they said the sender wanted to remain anonymous.
    I'm done searching.  It's up to the sender to contact me if they want a personal "thank you."
