Solace

Several years ago, I went through a very difficult time. Bad news had left me feeling bereft.

My Mom, knowing that there really was nothing to be said or done to make things better, picked up this little guy for me. Somehow, this grown up Grandmother found solace in this warm, furry little body.

  6. Hi Linda!
    I love my teddie bears! It gets a little warm during the summer months... but all fall, winter and spring, Honey Bear and Sweetie Bear are great to hug :o)

    love your recent posts, Linda! your grandchildren certainly do love you!
    ...and I wonder what kind of bird visited your birdbath! Very different looking. This summer I identified a Yellow shafted flicker. It was so different looking... Wild Birds Unlimited helped me identify him by emailing a photo!

    Enjoy the new week ~ God bless you dear ♥

  8. I carried a stuffed animal with me clear through college. There's something really special about those furry little critters -- especially when they come from your mama. :-)

  11. Teddy's are the best to hug, next to your own dog. Lovely thoughts.

  12. I thought I had commented here... I loved this post. loved it. I gave my teddy bear up when I got married (hubby couldn't believe I still slept with one), but yeah. There just aren't words for that gift.
