The Nut Cracker

My sister always wanted to be a ballerina. Her big dream was that someday she would dance in The Nutcracker. Mom collected music boxes and the one pictured was from the Bradford Exchange. Mom would order the catalog, cut out the pictures and clue them to cards. She enjoyed looking at them and probably dreaming of getting them one day.

Well Dad got her the music box and my sister would sit for hours and listen and dream.

She never danced the nutcracker on stage, but in her mind a thousand times over.

Living life with no regrets, the dream was good enough for her.
