Merriment Chain~Day 21

Hello fellow bloggers, can you believe we have done 21 days of merriment? I sure can't. It has been so much fun and I must again thank Misi and Robyn again for such an excellent idea!

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!

Hi Cindi, I am so sorry about your brother, things like that are so hard esp. when you are a little child.
What a special godmother, I can tell she loves you dearly, you have to be special to her for her to have given you her awesome collection of Boyd Bears. I know you think of her when you look at them. Wishing you a Merry Christmas. hugs, Lecia

Cindi, what a sweet gesture from you Godmother. I know that you will cherish that collection for a lifetime. She sounds like a wonderful person from her love and devotion. Blessings to you and yours:)

Sounds like your godmother was chosen with care by your parents and has fulfilled her duties brilliantly. What a sweet thing for her to pass on to you. And, wow....I didn't realize you were a twin. How tragic to have lost your brother....they say that bond is always felt....And especially since you had spent six years of your lives together.... Wishing you comfort and joy....Hugs ~ Robin
