Every now and then you just have to give in and buy yourself a little something to make you feel better.
Last year, I saw this little Precious Moments figurine of a little girl holding a teddy bear. (entitled "This Bears My Love For You") As most of you know, my daughter's nickname is Babybear, so I always picture her with a teddy bear.
Usually, it is the Precious Moment's boy characters with the teddy bears so when I saw this, I knew I wanted it. I put it on my wish list, but it was already after my husband had done his Christmas shopping. (He did give me two other beautiful PM figurines!)
This year, as we all know, he was not here for Christmas. One of the things that made me sad was knowing he was not going to surprise me with any more keepsakes in memory of our daughter.
On Wednesday, I had to stop at the grocery store for a couple of items. There is a card shop immediately across the hall from the grocery store and I took a peek in there. I'm glad I did because this little figurine was on sale for 50 percent off! So, I got it.
Just another keepsake, to remember my little girl, and her daddy because I know in my heart he would have bought it for me had he been there.
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
