I had been given many nice Christmas gifts but there’s a particular gift that I can’t forget.
It is a mini felt teddy bear handmade for me by my high school friend. At the time neither one of us really knew anything about sewing. Her first teddy bear wasn’t perfect, it had uneven stitches and crooked neck. However I was so thrilled to get such a special gift, and I loved it so much because of the time she spent making on little bear just for me! I have kept her little felt bear in a special drawer for over twenty years, it has a magical power that drags me back to my high school days and makes me think about all the things that I left behind.
I hope you share something meaningful this Christmas rather than any product that we rush out and buy at the shops to exchange in a hurry.
