Six memory bears have found their homes for Christmas. Through the tears of loss, the memories flow as the bears quietly begin their therapy. The grieving process is a life-long journey, a life without a loved one in it as they were, but now, in your hearts. The memory bears are there for you to hold and hug, as you remember.
I was privileged to deliver six memory bears to a family today. Only one of the bears will be presented before Christmas day, the rest will be given as gifts to family members at Christmas. I know in my heart that they will be smiling through their tears when they see the memory bears, holding and hugging them as they remember their loved one.
God, thank you for letting me be a part of this experience.
