Tim Hortons will forever be in one of my most treasured memories as it involves one of those moments in life you will never forget the feel, the sight, or smell of!!
When we had the birth of our son we knew it was our last. Due to medical reasons I was going to be unable to have anymore children. Which was ok but when you are told by a doctor and not able to make the decision yourself it is harder to handle, and of course my being a little hormal aswell didn't help. Anyway I was in the hospital for several days prior to delivery and knew we would be there for several after. Like many people I don't really care for hospital food and just wanted a touch of normalcy. Everyday my husband would bring me 6 muffins and my steeped tea or coffee. When the big moment finally came and went I was a little sad knowing this was the end of the road. Once everything was calmed down my husband popped out to get his Tim Hortons coffee and my Tea. When he came back in the room he had the muffin box in his hand. Well by then I was starved and could hardly wait to have a fresh muffin. When I opened the lid I noticed there was only 5 muffins in the box. Where the 6th muffin should have been was a square wrapped package. Confused I looked at my husband who was choked up and he said "For you Baby". So I took the box out and opened it up. Inside was a necklace with a diamond pendant. My husband said " each diamond represents each of one of our children" I have never cried so hard in my life. My husband is not one to be creative or lavish me with crazy gifts so forever I will remember the smell of fresh muffins, the sight of the necklace in the muffin box or the warmth of love!!
