I get some awesome emails from people all over the world with something of the same theme: they’re now grown adults, with children of their own, still holding on to a teddy bear given to them when they were tots. Some are hidden in closets, some are proudly on display, and some have been heir loomed off to a younger generation who we all hope will cling to the little bear with love. So, I had to a do a bear in honor of scruffy old bears everywhere.
The bear looks classic, old, slightly worn, a touch faded with age, but the look on his face still proud and attentive, protective, ready to assume his responsibilities and duties at any age.
I guess its something of a self portrait, too. I’m getting older, slightly worn, and a bit faded, but I’m awfully protective of those I love.Maybe this bear is something of a self protrait.
And on a personal not, I’d like to say, I’ve met one of the best smiles I’ve come across in a while. A wonderful handsome, silly, ridiculous, caring, and charming man who spends most of his time thinking of me. Now, look at that face. Such a Handsome Devil. I’ve told many of you often, at some point I want to take care of my family. With him? I think I might just have a start one…..
One year ago a man destroyed me…..Today? A man wants to help me pick up the pieces and build something.
