Stuffed Animals (365 Days of Blessings – Day 178)

I am thankful for stuffed animalsWhen I was a child I had no fewer than 30 stuffed into the bed with me, and if there was a millimeter of one sticking out of the blanket, I couldn’t sleep for the guilt of it. And this was all in a single-sized bed! Impressive!These days I love stuffed animals because I get so much enjoyment out of watching Poppet with hers. She especially loves all the ones from Papa (and one Puppy from a very special “uncle”).Warmest regards,...more
