Dorothy, the bear who started it all
I feel my maternal generations blend together when I look at my healing bear.
My Grandmother, Ella said to my Mom (Dorothy) at a time when she was lost and hurting, “It’s time you came home.” My Mother, when her health was failing said to me, “It’s time you came home.” I cared for my Mom when she needed me and I felt lost when we were separated.
I hug my Ella Bear made from Mom’s treasured fur coat and feel like “I’ve come home.” I find great comfort and healing when I see the little Dorothy bear on display, still sending out her love.
