teriw Posted December 9, 2007 Share Posted December 9, 2007 As I've decided to do my best to embrace Christmas, I went out and bought a proper Christmas tree. A proper "Charlie Brown," 3-foot, cheap, fake tree. It's actually quite cute and if my great niece tears it down, no worries. I wasn't even going to get into our "real" ornaments, but decided to look for some specific ones. My mom is up for a visit and we were going through them together. They weren't in the first box, so I climbed up the ladder again and brought down the second. The ornaments are just wrapped individually in paper towel. I then unwrapped a picture of Bill and I (no frame, just a loose 4x6 picture). I thought, "well, that's odd, why is this picture in here?" I turned it over. There was a note from Bill to me. I was still thinking it was from last year and that I hadn't remembered receiving it, and that was bugging me. Then I read it -- again and again, until I "got it." He had written it to me and snuck it in the box for me to find this year. It said: "For My Most Favourite Person in the World, Betcha thought you'd gotten rid of me? Fooled yuh! Still here :- ) I'll always love you and I'll always be around! Me, xxxxx, Saturday, January 20th 2007" I just stared at it. I'm just trying to imagine him doing it. Imagine how he must have been feeling, and knowing that his hope was that we'd discover it together and he'd wink at me with that sexy, cute grin of his. But he thought it through. He wrapped up the picture and carefully placed it among ornaments that he knew I'd find, but not until Christmas time. And that it was nearly a year ago. I'm just blown away...
