Merriment Chain~Day 21
Today I am sharing my very small but so special collection of Boyd's figurines I have for Christmas.
Here is the back story, it is kinda long so you don't have to follow along if you don't want. I was born with a twin brother named Brad, when we were almost 6 years old my twin died of leukemia. It was in June that he died. The Christmas after that was a pretty hard one for all of us. I remember getting a teddy bear from my Godmother that year and that teddy meant the world to me, even though I was 6 years old I guess I needed something special to love. Through the years my godmother has always been very special to me. I would go and stay at her house part of every summer and stuff like that. This year has been a pretty hard year for my godmother. This summer she had to put my godfather in a nursing home because of Alzheimer's. She is so devoted to him, she is there from 6:30 am until 6:30 pm every day. She gave me this collection of Boyd's because she isn't home enough now to enjoy them and she knows how much I loved them so just like so many years ago when I was sad and alone with no friends after my twin died she again gave me the gift of teddies to love this year when I was also sad and alone, I will treasure them always.
Have a great day, enjoy the time you have with your loved ones, each moment make a memory!
