A month ago, a friend in my church sent an email around saying she was selling her piano for pretty cheap. I quickly emailed Matt the photo, kind of half kidding. By the time he got home, it was late, he was tired and I had received another email saying she had already sold it. So I didn't really bring it up and I moved on. It wasn't very practical anyway. Who wants to have a piano to move around?!
On Christmas morning. I opened a card that had the picture of the piano in it! Matt had emailed her right away and bought it! I think I was more happy about the thought and the surprise. It was weird to be so impractical - but fun!
So now we have a piano in our home. I have missed having that. It's old (1909 maybe?) and has lots of character but I think it's beautiful. I'm looking forward to the sounds from little fingers and great music, too. :)
Thanks, Matt. Christmas with just you and our little family this year was perfect.
