This wooden clock was made by one of my former students in his high school industrial arts class some twenty years ago. Last spring this former student, Caesar, stopped by school for a visit with his wife and pictures of his new baby. The teddy bear tucked inside the clock is one that I had as an infant. This same teddy bear was also loved by our two children when they were very young. On a quite memorable occasion, shortly after we brought Luke home from the hospital, newborn infant Luke was crying, and his almost three year old brother said, "Don't cry baby, here is my Teddy." This was the same bear that his daddy had to retrieve before bedtime from our friend's house, who watched Dean during the birth of Luke. This is the kind of memory touches a mom's heart.
So those are some of my treasures that hang on my wall. There is list of other Fun Monday participants in the margin on the left. Go visit those folks, and see what they have chosen to show us. Thank you for your visit and participation. I hope that photographing your hanging wares was not too difficult.
Interested in next week's Fun Monday. See Friday's post.
