The Little Brown Teddy Bear

Updated on September 30, 2012

One day years ago she awoke to a particularly blue day. It is so many years ago now that she doesn't remember why - just that it was an out of sorts day. She left for work as usual and had not been at her desk for very long when he came down the hall, peeked over the wall that separated her desk from the rest, and presented her with the cutest stuffed teddy bear.

What woman can resist an adorable stuffed animal, no matter her age, especially when it is given by the person she loves. An immediate weight was lifted off her chest; teddy was given a place of honour on her desk and every time she looked at him that day, she smiled and her heart was filled with gladness.

Through the years the little brown teddy bear lived in different parts of their house, but he was always somewhere and he always moved from one house to another with them. Where other stuffed animals came and went - teddy was always given special dispensation.

Somewhere along the way she tied a pretty green ribbon around his neck and these days he perches on the love seat in the master bedroom where he can easily be seen upon entering through their door. And from time to time she is reminded of that morning - so long ago, when he cared enough to make her day happy. And she smiles once more.

Dedicated to the memory of my soulmate - my husband Craig.

      Teddy Bears, they just bring comfort close to your heart, to any child, to any one. We become so attached to them that we don't want them disposed especially the vintage kinds, the soft huggable ones and the ones that have sentimental values imprinted in our lives.

      Oh Lynda. I have tears running down my face after reading this, as it opened a similar memory for me. It is just so damned hard and so unfair when your soulmate dies. I am sending you a huge great big hug.
