Hi ho everyone! And almost Happy New Year. I suppose I really could say Happy New Year since by the time you read this it could already be the New Year. So Happy New Year! As you well know, once in a great while I am given to being contemplative and this seems like a good time to share a few thoughts with you, my friends – my beary good friends.
It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that I had my very best day ever. That was back in June of this very year. I can honestly say 2015 was a very good year for me. You know I have a real fondness for Anna (and a few of her close friends – Merida and Ariel). It seemed to me that Anna might not have a teddy bear of her own. I thought she should have one so I did something I have never done before. I called in a favor of you-know-who: the bearmaker, the seamstress, the creator of piece parade bears. I asked Ginger if she would make a little bear – as much like me as possible so Anna could have a bear to cuddle with on those long, cold Arendelle nights when Elsa has decorated the kingdom with snow and ice.
When she was finished, I was encouraged by the new ted’s likeness to me when I was younger. Someone mistook a photo of the new teddy for me!
I was not able to deliver my bear friend to Anna in person because I was knee deep in getting ready for Santa’s visit.
Thankfully, I have a very close relationship with a very good delivery person and he was able to send the following photos of Anna and her new bear.
They warm my heart! Now I feel like Anna will always have a teddy friend! What a great way to begin the New Year!
It is my most fervent and sincere wish that you have a wonderful year ahead – with good friends, good memories and good snacks. Can’t forget those now, can we?
Happy New Year, my friends!
As always, thank you for reading.
love & hugs,
PS Ginger says “Happy New Year!” too
