Default Oprah Like Moment

I just watched Oprah, and she took her staff and families,[1065] on a free trip to Maui..Grand Waileah [sp] for a weeks vacation, this summer. This was her way of giving back to her hard working staff..Five chartered jets flew them to a week in Paradise

Now we don't know Oprah, but has anyone ever given you an Oprah type surprise, out of the blue? Somewhat like recently, when that waitresss was given a huge tip?

Has a nice thing done for you, when you least expected it, given from the heart...have you been so fortunate?

I would have say, one thing that was such a nice unexpected gift, was from our own Kuki...Back on the Cruismates Golden Princess cruise, Kuki arranged to have limo's, take us from the hotel to the pier. It was a wonderful gift, and was so appreciated....

Well, my surprise for my husband wasn't exactly a trip to Hawaii, BUT I did surprise him on his birthday with a helicopter tour of Los Angeles! He really enjoyed it, we went over the Valley, the beautiful Coast, the ocean, Hollywood, Malibu and a few other areas along the way...we also got a picture of our house from the sky, which was cool!

And thank goodness the 'copter had air conditioning, coz it turned out to be one of the HOTTEST weekends in L.A. history!

I haven't received a cool thing like a trip to Hawaii but did surprise my friends when I hired a limo to take us to the Toby Keith concert in Tampa a few weeks ago.....it was a great feeling to be able to do that and see the surprise come to life!
