The girls and I arrived home this afternoon from a beautiful day outside. As we were walking through the front lobby the doorman stopped me and said that I had a package. He then said "What new instrument did you order this time?" as he knows our family fairly well. I gave him a dumbfounded look and continued to be dumbfounded as I carried this tall package up. I started to think that maybe Geir bought another guitar...but the package had my name on it and it was spelled wrong - wasn't him. I had no clue from the outside of the box - The Dulcimer Shoppe? - what's a dulcimer - not even sure it was a thing. I was so curious - I didn't waste a second to get this box open. This is what a dulcimer is....
When I opened the case and saw this beautiful instrument I had a very clear idea who sent this to me. Ella shouted out "It is a Mommy Guitar!" and started jumping up and down - while Vivian threw the popcorn packing in the air. We were a bunch of giggling girls. It was a glorious moment for all of us.
My clear idea has not been confirmed yet so I wont reveal who I think sent us this generous and beautiful gift. There wasn't a card or a clue - nor did there need to be. The glorious moment turned into a glorious day. The sound that sings from this dulcimer is magical. It is the 4FHWS model and you can listen to it here. I am in love with my new Mommy Guitar! I want to enjoy this day and think about how to go about accepting this lovely gift tomorrow.
Do you see the moon? It is the same moon you see.
Just to not make anyone wonder more than they have to - this mystery person is not a past lover or anything weird like that. Well maybe a little weird but on the safe side of weird.
