Unexpected Company
Cheri Wollenberg
Since I had been called a name all my life that was pronounced wrong, how do I suddenly change it? Well, my "knight in shining armor" did it!!!! When I met my husband-to-be I told him of my little dilemma, and he started calling me Cheri Lynne. Humorous again, because he is a country boy who was raised in a rural area also, not far from my hometown, and he pronounced my name "sherry" Lynne rather than Cheri' Lynne. We attended college together (as a married couple), and immediately my name was changed! Our new friends never knew any difference. I am known now as "sherry" Lynne……………..Still not right, but...... Wouldn't it be wonderful if this was the only problem in life (laugh). Now I answer to anything....sharon,shelly,shara,shari...what does it matter? As an older and hopefully much wiser woman, I know that the person behind the name, what he/she does and is to others is what counts most. So, when I paint these little cheries', or "darlings" I remember with fondness that I was a little "cherry" at one time long ago and never knew the difference. THE END (TaDah!)
