The Big Secret – Part 2

Second Thoughts

Can We Pull It Off?

Mike and I were in the car, just the two of us, talking (again) about the really special Christmas gift we are planning to give someone we love. We were both excited and frequently interrupted each other as bits and pieces of the details floated through our brains, and as quickly as we thought of them, they popped out of our mouths. Then we talked about how we should actually present the gift to our special someone. We were as happy as I can ever remember us being, enthusiastic and almost sizzling with excitement. And it came to me like a thump alongside my head: IT REALLY IS better to give than receive. Boy, we can’t wait to give this gift!!

 Update: Yesterday, I called John, the person who’s working to get the gift ‘perfect’ for us. The good news is he was able to fix what was originally wrong with the gift, but in doing so another issue surfaced. Stay tuned!

A Big Secret

Loose Lips Sink Ships

Mike and I have a big secret. You’ll NEVER guess what it is either. Nope. You can guess and guess, but I don’t think you’d ever guess correctly in a million years. 

We are trying to line up a really special Christmas gift for someone we love. I’m so excited about the surprise that I got Mike, Mr. Calm, Cool and Collected, excited too! How about that?! We promised each other we wouldn’t tell anyone ahead of time since it could ruin the Wow factor for the person we are gifting. . .Loose lips and all that. That said, I am about to burst and all I’ve thought about since Saturday afternoon is THE GIFT. . .Yikes! 

Mike and I got up really early Saturday morning and travelled a distance from home to see the gift in person. I mean we did our due diligence as best we could ahead of time, but this gift has to be seen in person. Well, it was almost perfect. Note I say ‘almost.’ We have a couple of issues to work through, but I’m optimistic. We’ll know more by next weekend. I know I shouldn’t even TALK about this gift until it’s a done deal, but you know what? Even if this particular gift doesn’t work out in time for Christmas we can still give it at a later date. 

Do you have a big secret gift you’re giving this Christmas? Has someone ever completely surprised you with an awesome gift? Tell me about it and help redirect my mind. Come on, spill the story, right here, right now!
