Saturday's 40 Acts was to surprise someone, and one way and another, despite my good intentions I failed (bought little gifts and forgot to give them).  Then Sunday I failed again and yesterday was my day off so I was chilling at home and catching up on some housework!!  This morning I finally managed it, and I'm glad that I failed on Saturday because today's was so much better.  Someone I see nearly every day and who is always cheery but I don't know their name... a lollipop man who is out in all weathers seeing children and adults safely over a nasty junction outisde a closed school (en route to two other schools).  I hope he enjoys his little surprise gift... I certainly value his presence on that junction and his good natured chat.


Then when I got to church, there on the doorstep was a little bunch of daffodils, carefully wrapped in newspaper, a little battered by the rain and wind, but golden and lovely.  I have no idea who might have left them there, but I brought them in and put them in a vase where they can be enjoyed by anyone using our hall.  Thank you, whoever you are, for the surprise of golden loveliness on a chilly morning.
