Thankful Thursday ~ Memory Bears
I remembered this.
When my dear Nana died and we were packing up her house I ran across a bolt of the fabric used to upholster much of her beautiful bedroom and it's furniture. It was soooo Nana. My Sister-in-law was with me at the time and I whispered to her, "Don't ask any questions, just help me get this past my Mother and my Sister without them noticing!"
I have a dear friend who can sew beautifully. Remember my daughter's Mary dress? She made that too. I asked her if she could use Nana's fabric to make Memory Bears, like ones I found to show her online.
I gave one to my Mother, to my teen cousin-a grandchild very special to my Nana, to my Sister and to my Brother's family...as well as one for me/us. I knew we'd be comforted to have a Nana Bear to hug when we missed her.
I think my friend did an EXCELLENT job! In fact, I'd put you in touch with her if you wanted to have a Memory Bear made. Email me, off blog, at CatholicHomeEdotyahoodotcom to privately send me your email and I'll put you in touch with her.
Friend, if your reading this I am so thankful for your talent in making these bears. My sister called me today crying over hers. God is using your talents to comfort the bereaved.
