My maternal grandparents have expected to pass away for years now. They are quite healthy, it's just that no one in their family has lived much into their 70s. So when they started making plans, they asked everyone to make a wish list of any of their things we want. I immediately put in my bid for a vanity/dresser that I used to play with growing up. There were other things, but I figured their children would also request them. Again, this was probably 10 years ago.

At Coastie Brother's wedding, my granddaddy was telling me that he brought Coastie Brother some of the things that he had requested. My grandmother asked again if I wanted the vanity and was there anything else I wanted. They are downsizing and preparing to move into a retirement community in Dallas. I mentioned that one thing I wanted, my uncle had dibs on. My grandmother then informed me that he didn't really want anything anymore. My granddaddy was upset that he didn't know because it was already boxed up and he could have brought it with him. Since I'm not a vulture, I never thought to ask if Uncle still wanted it.

I came home from work today and had a package waiting for me. Remember the red item that I covet? It is now MINE. I still can't believe it.

Thank you GG and Sir!!!! I am so appreciative and will take great care of it.
