Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Teddy Bear Day. The teddy bear is one of the most popular toys for children, and holds a special place in many adults hearts, too. This loveable stuffed animal has a day all of its own, Teddy Bear Day. The American toy bears were named Teddy, in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt. Many teddy bears have become famous over the years, including Paddington Bear, Rupert Bear, Pudsey Bear and, of course, Winnie the Pooh!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
For I am a bear of very little brain and long words bother me.
Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne
I don’t remember having a teddy bear as a child or any other stuffed animals until I was a teenager. Then I had a few which were more than likely a souvenir from the fair or an amusement park. When my children were little they had lots of them and the one that stands out most was the Pooh bear.
I still have a few old stuffed animals of various shapes and sizes stored away here at my house and have placed a few in one of my spare bedrooms. From time to time the grandchildren still play with them.
I’m hoping that today’s nice weather will see the end to the work on the front porch. It will be good to have that job completed. Right now it is overcast, and they say that towards the end of the week we’ll be seeing cooler weather in the 60’s and rain.
I haven’t put up any fall decorations yet, the pictures today are from this time last year. There are still a few days left before Autumn arrives.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Teddy bears don't need hearts as they are already stuffed with love.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over almost 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2021. for Teddy Bears and childhood toys
2022. for memories of days gone by
2023. for a beautiful day to finish painting the porch
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
