I have helped my wife collect Precious Moments. She tells me which ones to buy and then I help by buying them for her. She has too many for the curio cabinet so now I have to find a matching cabinet.
On my side I will tell a little about me. After we were married 27 years ago, I kept a file with pictures of a past relationship. I told my wife about the pictures before we ever dated because I tried to scare her off as my past was not a nice one. I had a son but never saw him as I was off the coast of Nam and since I was not married the militay lawyers told me to sign adoption papers which I did. I kept the pictures of this girl and told my wife someday I would meet the son I never saw and he might want the pictures. It happened about 6 years ago as he found me through a search. His mother refuses to have any contact with him but I sent him the pictures which has meant so much to him. I took my family to meet him and his wife and baby. What a wonderful wife I have who let me keep those pictures.
I have a collection of Precious Moments and now I collect Angels, I used to be a packrat moved 3 x's in one year, now my motto is if I don't use it in a year...its a goner!!! My hubby, well, I think he has all his Tennis shoes from 17 yrs ago lol, when he gets new ones his famous words are I'll use my old ones to mow the lawn NOT, he always uses his nice new ones!!!
