The Best Surprise EVER!


After 43 years on this Earth, and 13 years of marriage, I received the BEST surprise. I came home one afternoon and my husband had built me a swing and had hung it from my favorite Maple tree. You sit on the swing, back up, then let go...YAhoooooooo...swinging out over the hill is exhilarating. I LOVE it.

  4. Have you ever read the poem; The Swing, by Robert Louis Stevenson? It's wonderful. My Mother was a school teacher and she always read this to me when I was young. I think you will like it! I loved to swing and still do!

    Kathy: You're right...Life's simple pleasures.

    Prep: I have read the poem, in fact I have a little book of poetry from when I was a kid that I keep on my daughter's bookshelf...complete with Holly Hobbie bookmark...and it has the poem!

    Peramb: I agree, but can't tell my husband that, he would NEVER take me seriously!

  6. Ooooh - yay! My husband built a swing for me when we were -- dare I say -- courting. Definitely won me over even though I was already completely signed up. Unfortunately it hasn't been put up in our backyard. And mine isn't meant for a tree so I LOVE seeing yours!!!

    Congratulations. What a sweetie.
