A matter of definition
 
 
location: cave
Current mood: indescribable
éjà vu: a false sense that something new has been seen before
Jamais vu: a feeling or impression that something familiar is not familiar or is being seen for the first time
Presque vu: the erroneous sense of having something on the tip of your tongue, or that a mental epiphany or breakthrough is about to occur

I wonder if the French have a word for the strange feeling that something wonderful has just happened, but you don't have any idea what?

Well, there was a short SF story called "Narapoia", in which a character had an obsessively strong feeling that other people were trying to do him good. I like your notion better, though.
