When the surprise is …Anticlimactic
(Me ‘n Sister Shirl)
Last night was sweet in one way. Son Mark drove in from Florida for his son Luke’s 19th BD. We all went to Longhorn for supper, to celebrate. It was very sweet to me because Mark and Corinne are divorced, and it was a very sad and explosive time. It has been a few years now. Corinne was part of our family for many years she was and is like a daughter to us. Love that girl.
Tonight was no reunion of course, but it was quiet and very cordial. There at the table was Son Mark on Luke’s Right and Corinne on his left. It was s good time, we had about 10 family there.
Sherece and Stella and Grandma Mary was there.
(Cousin Stephen made it)
Sherry had mentioned since Luke’s BD is 2 days after our anniversary, let’s just take that as our anniversary celebration.
(And my girl, Sherry!)
I thought it okay, so being Mr. Cool I found a great heart shaped ‘Sterling silver and Mystic Fire topaz Diamond Accented Necklace’ for my sweetheart. Gift wrapped with the ‘sweetest note about my Heart is always yours, etc.’ I asked Mark to slip it in to the table for me. After the BD wishes for Luke, I asked if it was all right for me to give Sherry a gift for our Anniversary. I handed her a nicely gift-wrapped small package. I was smiling.
When she opened the box, the Topaz set had fell from the sterling silver heart. So I could not put it around her neck and smile.
I knew I could fix it, but not there.
Sure takes the wind out of your sails when the end you expect it Anti-climatic.
At home I fixed the pendant, but the glow of the moment was gone.
Thanks for stopping by.
Of course all is well, the pendant is ‘fixed’ and she got to wear it that evening at home. She is sweet.
This my Girl’s favorite antique CAR, the 1948 Chevy Fleetline. (I am her favorite ANTIQUE!)
