Nancy’s Bunny

Recently, I was in Goodwill and saw a cute, very large (12 inches long x 10 inches high)  ceramic bunny for $5.00.  It was in perfect condition…not a chip, crack or mark on it anywhere.

Scattered across her back were pretty hand-painted flowers and leaves.

I turned her over and saw the name, “Nancy,”  signed on the bottom.   I couldn’t help but wonder how and why Nancy’s sweet  bunny ended up at Goodwill.

Thinking I really don’t need one more unnecessary thing to pack up and move to the house in Hooterville,  I put the bunny back on the shelf  but, as I turned to walk away I swear I heard Nancy’s bunny whisper, almost plead…
“Please take me home with you.”

Don’t worry, Nancy.  I adopted the bunny you so beautifully created  and she now has a good home with me.

He is so cute, I don't know how anyone could part with him too. At least he as a good home now.

I'm sure you're glad you listened as nancy's little bunny whispered her little plea. I find it to be quite amazing, the enjoyment we can derive from little things like a ceramic rabbit. Have a wonderful Easter weekend with your family. Hugs, Cindy S
