My mother asked me in the comments on my last few photos in the bedroom about the bear my sister had made for me. I have it sitting together with a Precious Moments she gave me when my father passed away ("This too shall pass") and a stitched piece I made after I received the bear as a gift. I saw this chart in a magazine and thought it was perfect with the bear. I don't even remember when I stitched this but it is from when we lived out in the east of Holland so over 15 years ago. I added a doily my grandmother made after talking with my mother about it since I called it my 'missing you' shelf.
The verse on the stitched piece is:
"We never really grow old it seems
We keep in our hearts our fancies and dreams
And in a corner all tucked away
To the child we all were yesterday."
