Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my question is . . .

What is the last thing that truly surprised you?

Please link up only if you’re participating in Aloha Friday. All irrelevant links will be deleted.

    Doing laundry the other week, I moved some clothing and a centipede fell out. It was huge! It surprised me and set me on edge for hours.

    Wednesday my parents brought my son home from visiting. I was supposed to meet them in town, but they said they had something for me so they would come to the house. I asked if it wouldn’t fit in my car, but they were adamant.
    Turns out it was my Grandma’s cedar chest. Last time I saw it it was in horrible shape, but they had it completely refinished for me. Solid cedar (they don’t make them like that anymore) and absolutely gorgeous. 70 years old and a family heirloom. I LOVE it. Now to keep my boys from trashing it… ;)

    My 18 year old son really surprised me when he bought me (on his own) a rose and special card for Mother’s Day. The card was a funny card about moms driving with their kids that really applied to us. He obviously put some thought into picking out a perfect card.

    My husband added texting to our phone packages. We haven’t had text in about a year now, and he just wanted to be able to get a hold of me and friends. That was really sweet and unlike him. This happened yesterday.
