Little Bear

This is my little bear. I sat him on the kitchen counter this morning and asked him why he had that upset look on his face.

He said: "That's because you let me sit on the bookshelf in the living room for years and years without looking at me. What is it with you? We spent our whole life together. Almost. When we were little, you played a lot with me. I was proud because you liked me much better than your dull dolls. And now? I have been sitting on bookshelfs for so long ! And I really am wondering why in earth you took me with you the 15 times you moved!"

I said nothing. Instead I went to get my sketchbook and pencils. When I came back and started drawing, he said with a wink:"I'm still very cute in my checkered skirt, am I?"

This is a BEAUTIFUL drawing, so tender and gentle and full of love. Please tell your bear that it looks very cute indeed.

Your conversation with your bear reminds me that mine may be feeling a little neglected lately... time for a hug.
