February Photo Heart Connection

Meet Ted.  (Original, right?)  He belongs to my daughter.  Did I mention that my daughter is 23?  He came to live with us after my baby shower, before she was even born.  He sat patiently in her crib waiting for her arrival. He still holds a special place in her heart - and under her pillow - even after all these years. He's a well educated bear, he went to college at Penn State. I'm sure he had some interesting adventures there, but he's not telling. He's also well travelled.  He lived in Spain with my daughter while she studied abroad.  I was so afraid that her luggage would get lost, with Ted inside! That would have been devastating! He is well-loved as you can see.  He is my Photo-Heart connection this month.  Whenever I look at him, I just smile- because he is a treasure to my daughter and because having a daughter who still brings her Ted with her wherever she goes is a treasure to me.

  5. What a sweet Photo-Heart Connection! That bear has soaked up a lot of love over the years, that must be why she keeps it with her where she goes. It's a physical reminder for the love you have for her, have had for her before she was born. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story, I am smiling today!

  10. oh...i loved reading this! and, yes...we are definitely in similar stages of life. my daughter has a blanket that's been with her from the start. it's barely even a blanket at this point...just sort of a tattered piece of material. i wonder if it will go with her next year to college? it's nice to share a similar heart connection with somebody. :)
