This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
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...

This Bears My Love For You

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.

What a beautiful figurine. :) It was definitely meant for you to have. So glad you peeked into that store.

Some might say that the fact that you thought to peek in and the figurine you wanted was 50% off is a sign from those who love you & whom you love! I"m glad you bought it for yourself. We don't do that often enough, I think (take care of ourselves, treat ourselves, etc).
