I’d Rather Be…

Making Memories

“Don’t you think it’s time we did something
about our problem, hon?”

M Pic 001I looked up,  followed David’s eyes
to the mantle. “I think a Thomas Kinkade
style painting would be perfect.”

Within minutes we are ready and head
for the mall. We slowly stroll along the
storefronts taking in the things we liked.

Then we reached “our store.” There is not
another like this place. No two articles are
alike, every piece is unique.

We were there for a long time. There were
two paintings … we loved them both. Finally,
I got to choose and we left.

David and I had not looked at the storefront as
we went in but did when leaving. And there
she was. In all her splendorous beauty.

A Victorian doll with long, golden locks,
flowing flowered dress and feathered hat.
I ooohed and aaahed then moved along.

A few months later on Christmas morn my
beloved husband came to me, hands behind
his back.

I gazed into his eyes, “You know we don’t…”
Slowly David brought his hands around,
“Just open it.”

M Pic 002“It’s Natalie!”

She is one of a kind. A real collectible.
She is numbered. Has a certificate.

I jumped up and threw my arms around my
David, “I love you … you are the best .”
