The Gift

I got so excited about Harper that I never got a chance to tell the story about how she came into my life.

It all started about two months ago when John informed me he had come up with the perfect present for me.  He said it was a big one, and if he could pull it off it would be my only gift.  He spent hours and hours researching this gift, so I told him I had figured out what the present was: a trip!  No other present could take some much work.  I told him my guess and he reluctantly agreed that I was right.

Last weekend he warned me he would be gone all day on Saturday doing something for my present.  The only thing I could think of was a travel fair.  This seemed a little weird, but I went with it.  Natalie and Mitch asked me if I wanted to go shopping, so I decided it was the perfect time to pick up gifts for John.  We went out shopping all afternoon and when we returned, John's car was in the garage, despite the fact he wasn't supposed to be back for hours.  Apparently Natalie and Mitch were in on it

I walked in the door and there was John sitting on the floor with brown ball of fur in a box.  And my life will never be the same.
