I have been keeping a surprise from my husband (and as a result….you) for six weeks! We had originally booked our reservation at the Pop Century resort. After announcing the trip on the blog, I was contacted my one of my amazing readers. She and her husband had been so touched by our loss of our son and how we were celebrating his life that they wanted to do something nice for us.
They are members of the Disney Vacation Club and used their points to book us a week at the Ft. Wilderness cabins! I was so blown away by their generosity and wonderful compassion. They did this for me, a stranger to them. I am in tears as I type this because I was touched so deeply.
My husband has ALWAYS wanted to stay at Ft. Wilderness (and Wilderness Lodge. He is equally in love). So after I worked out the details with my reader, I decided to wait and surprise my husband until we were here on site. So not only was I keeping the trip a secret from the kids, I was also keeping our resort a secret from my husband.
So earlier today when it was time to go check into our resort, I took him behind the van and spilled the beans and recorded the whole thing. (I will be uploading it when I upload the video of the kids.) He couldn’t believe it. He just kept saying Wow and Oh My Goodness. And he wouldn’t stop grinning. It was THE BEST. I am so glad I was able to surprise him. He still can’t stop smiling 2 hours later!
So thank you to my Amazing Reader! And please keep her and her son in your prayers. He is due any day now and will need to have heart surgery soon after birth. He could use every prayer, positive thought, etc that you can send him. His name is Mason.
