Years ago, before I married David, I was living in a townhouse in Houston, Texas.
I was at work one afternoon when I received a phone call that my townhouse had
been hit by lightning and burned to the ground. I was left with the clothes on my
back and a few items that the firemen were able to salvage.
I was devastated and had panic attacks for weeks after the fire. Fortunately my
insurance company sent me a sizable check, so I was able to put back together
the pieces of my life.
One of the things I purchased was this teddy bear. I spent many nights clinging to him
because I would have nightmares about the fire. So this little guy got me through
a rough patch in my life and he has the key to my heart.
He also gave me comfort when my car was stolen about three weeks after that fire.
It was a very rough time for me.
Now I am married and have my own teddy bear of a husband who holds
the key to my heart. But I still keep this sweet little bear who helped me
through a tough time and has remained with me during these happier days.
Bentley ~ you have the key to my heart too!
