I have a cold, so often have a cough. Last night, I suddenly began to cough and it lasted for a few minutes. My roommate suggested me drinking some water, but I was sitting in my bed watching a movie, and I didn't feel thirsty at that time. So I went on watching the movie and went on cough. But my roommate got off her bed, and brought me a glass of water! Wow! I really felt that I was overwhelmed by an unexpected favor.

This is an idiom "受宠若惊" that means a person feel happy and uneasy because of unexpected appreciate or favor.
