Oh, my goodness!  I was getting tears in my eyes as I was reading your post.  I am so, so happy for you.  That is so wonderful.  I could tell from the way you wrote that you truly loved that sleigh.  And I know that you will treasure it so much.  Every time you display it, you will feel such happiness and it will make your holiday season even more meaningful!!!

Re: Good things come to those who wait ..or how I got something I had wanted for years given to me!

thanks for sharing your wonderful story.  I am a believer in that saying "good things come..,". Whether it be from a great sale price on something or good hunting  I love when something I had my hopes on actually becomes a reality.   I am a great Hunter (shopper) and so is my DH.  My DH jokes that that is why are closets are stuffed and we can't fit another thing in the house. Lol. I am accused of being a big spender but if they only knew the things that I've acquired for peanuts.  Enjoy your holiday with your deer and sleigh.

You were in the right place at the right time.  It was meant to be yours!

 

I can just picture the scene.  Will you put anything in the sleigh?

A nice story.  Maybe I will get that little farmette in the country some day afterall.  I have wanted that ever since I was a kid.  I even wrote a poem about the country in 6th grade.  I remember it word for word to this day.  My family is sick of hearing it!!!!  I am happy for you and hope it brings you much joy for this winter and the holidays!

What a wonderful story. I am sure you were so grateful to finally own such a treasure. It is really something in life when there is a time and place you received this great gift.
