There is absolutely nothing better in this world than a cuddly, snuggly teddy bear, right?
When Em was in the hospital following her traumatic brain injury, I was encouraged to bring in a stuffed animal and a blanket from home. The nurses in the neuro-PICU stated that having familiar scents surrounding her while in a coma would help keep her comfortable and peaceful. Anything can help, right?
Now, 11 years after suffering a serious head injury- she still loves cuddling with teddy bears.
When I gave her the Snuggle Bear, she was overjoyed and hasn't let it out of her sight.
If anybody deserves a Snuggle Bear,it's Em.
Every single night since getting her teddy bear, she has cuddle with it and loved on it.
The bear brings her comfort and security.
As all children should feel.
We gave away two out of the three Snuggle Bears that Snuggle sent us to random strangers. One was a waitress at a restaurant where we ate breakfast on Labor Day. She complimented Em's bear and told me her son loves bears. I asked her if she would be there the following day, she said yep... well, her son is now a proud owner of a Snuggle Bear. The other recipient was a homeless woman standing on the corner with a sign and her child in a stroller sitting under a tree in the shade. Her baby deserved a Snuggle Bear and also deserves to know the safety and security love and home.
It's those little things in life that make such a big moment in another's life. Random acts of kindness are what helps humanity heal and move forward. Bring a smile to another's face.
