Not-so-simple pleasure - extravagant joy!

Just look what arrived yesterday!  It wasn't a special day until these arrived.  Not my birthday, no anniversary, I hadn't done anything special for anyone but a dear friend decided that it might be a day when I would like some flowers.  How lovely is that!  

My dear friend Amy and I rarely exchange birthday or Christmas presents or cards.  We visit each other, meeting for two or three days once a year.  We've been friends well over thirty year and indeed shared a house for many years.  It's one of those friendships where we can pick up the threads within minutes and take joy in each other's company.

And yesterday she sent me this bunch of pure unmerited joy.  I am truly blessed in my friendships.
