How to express love through a bear

Friday's Grand Connection Fun  

 by Mary May Larmoyeux

A few years ago a dear friend named Suzanne shared a fun idea with me. It has to do with a bear. A very small bear that's about three inches tall.

To my friend's family, a similar little bear represented their love for one another. They would take turns hiding the bear and when a family member found it, they would be reminded that they were loved.

We are now doing this in our home and the grandkids love it! Recently when I was cleaning the house, I had a surprise when I found the little guy tucked behind a pillow on our couch. It had been a particularly hard day when I found Hugs, and I couldn't help but smile.

What did I do? Packed him up and put him in the mail to some out-of-town grandchildren. I hope they will smile, too, when they rediscover our favorite bear.

Do you have a special way to remind your grandchildren of your love for them?

Have a great weekend,
He is able,
