What little nice surprises have you had along the way?

The week before last I was going to ring my gardener to come and mow my front lawn again as the grass was just getting a little long.  To my surprise when I took another look a couple of days later, thinking I must really ring him and organize ASAP, but noticed it had been cut.  Not sure who did it, but it was a pleasant surprise as I am not really in a position to be spending out too much on those sorts of things at the moment.  
I really appreciated it, and I am so grateful.

    It wasn't me @Joannie.  Sounds like you have a fairy Godmother.

    I had a visit from the garden fairies as well, they distributed--very sensitively-- a heap of mulch. I think I know who it was, but they obviously wanted to do something good without praise, which is really noble.

    One of the nice things that does happen is the building of relationships with people who were not part of your world before BC. In a strange way, getting rid of people who are not who you thought they were is also rewarding. Disappointing on occasions, but you end up in a better place in the long run. Trustworthiness  and honesty are invaluable traits.

    One of my best buddies who lives in another state organised a cleaner to come fortnightly whilst I was on chemo. She felt bad that she couldn't be here to help and is a real gem. I am forever grateful.

    I used to walk my dogs on the beach and often meet a couple with mini poodles along the way. When I was sick they left flowers on my doorstep for me. I didnt even know their names at that time and used to call them the poodle people.
