Surprise for Me!

Some of you might be interested in seeing THIS:

When I got home from San Francisco we walked in the door carrying much of our luggage. The lights were off but I looked ahead and thought I saw a piano. I looked again to make sure I really saw a piano. The lights turned on.

Me: Is this ours?
Isaiah: Yes.
Me: To keep?
Isaiah: Yes.

And then I cried. And sometimes I still cry thinking about how nice people are!

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to this beautiful surprise for me. I understand it started with my thoughtful husband who wanted to do something nice for my return from surgery and had been saving money for a piano (without my notice). I also understand there were some very generous contributions made from family members so Isaiah could pick a nicer piano than he planned on and a nicer piano than I ever imagined I'd own. I love it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

[One benefit of my baby growing up in the NICU is he can sleep through almost anything, including my piano playing.]


  1. Oooo... that IS a pretty one! Good job picking a winner, Isaiah! :) What a thoughtful hubby! It would seem you picked a winner too, Jenna. ;) Loves!

  2. That was SO thoughtful of him to think of you at such an uncertain crazy time. We love you guys.

  3. It was hard not to spill the beans, but for once we managed. What a sweet blessing. Can't wait to hear Evan playing "CHopsticks." Maya and I have our unique version.... and she even sings (sort of) when we play. You didn't know "Chopsticks" had words, I bet.

    Love you.
