memories and teddy bears since 1999
My love and
life of bear making began soon after my mom
lost her long
battle with breast cancer. Mama left behind
a life of
faith, love, perseverance, and a fur coat.
Mama really loved
the coat, so when I saw it hanging in
the closet two
years later, I knew I wanted something special
from it. I
wanted a teddy bear! I thought, maybe I could try
and make one,
however, not only did I not sew,
but I was born
with only one hand.
attempts, discouraged and frustrated,
I sadly put the
idea away. Days later, remembering what
Mama would have
said, and how proud I knew she would be,
I couldn't give
it up just yet. Mom always told me I could do
wanted to if I believed I could.
So with those
words echoing in my mind...
and my heart, I
made my first teddy bear.
Now, with each
little bear and dog I make, lives the faith and
love of our
Mama, and most importantly,
the belief she
instilled in me,
I can do all things through Him who
gives me strength. Phil. 4:13
