Give A Child A Teddy Bear And He Will Be Loved

If you ever have any doubts about love, go look at a child’s favorite stuffed animal.

This is Brian’s bear, who received plenty of love in his day (gave it too).  Brian keeps him on a shelf in his bedroom.  It is the one toy he never wants me to get rid of.

This teddy is rather special though.  It was given to Brian by my step-father when Brian was born.  In all the young photos of Brian he is dragging around this bear.

God forbid we’d try to go anywhere without his “Teddy.”  I’d drive 30 miles out of my way to make sure Teddy was in the car!

Nothing like a little hyperventilating with tears the size of marbles to send a parent madly looking for the magical “binky” . . .

His Grandfather, our “Papa Dick” died of heart disease when Brian was almost 4.  He adored Brian and the feeling was mutual.  So, Teddy is rather special.

He screams L O V E.

Thanks for the reminder Teddy.

Until next time –
