Sadly, I really am "slow to sew" most things.

So interesting reading everyone's stories! My name is Deb. When my niece was young, (she is now almost 38) she could not say Auntie....it came out Annie. She's always called me Anniedeb. She says it fast, all one word, and now her daughter, my grand-niece, calls me that too. Funny sidebar - Her sister decided she wanted her own name to call me, so she calls me AnnieEm, as does her daughter!

A few years ago I was making small teddy bears. They were about 6 inches in length and I gave them to everyone I met. I had a little poem to put on them.

"When you're feeling kind of lonely, and feeling kind of blue, Just hold me close to your heart and remember God Loves You".

I always took several to church and even sent hundreds with the church members going on missions trips. I visited the nursing home next to our church and gave out some. One of the little ladies had two of my bears inside her blouse. She said she wore them there to feel close to God. There wasn't anything magical about the little bears, just lots of love.

Over the years I have sent out 3000 little teddy bears here in the U.S. and to many different countries. From that, I was called "The Teddybear Lady" by friends and family.

I've enjoyed reading every post and feel like I know each of you a little better.

Debbie, thank you so much for sharing that. What a wonderful thing. This really touched me. I know depression, thankfully I am one that didn't sink to the level I couldn't come back. Not to offend anyone, but I believe God works on all of us in one way or another. I think everyone believes in something. I would love to see a picture of one of your bears. I think that is so neat. You fought your own battle in your own way and managed to touch so many lives. Just think what we did for them. Thank you.

People need to hang on to the good memories. Life is tough enough so enjoy what you can. Love the dog!!

I should really tell you from where the Mavita came. On a trip to Peru, the guide called me Mavita when she heard my name. The "ita" is an expression of love or cuteness. Anita means Little Ann, Juanita is Little Joan, and a grandmother might be called Abuelita.

One more time. I have to say that I have read this entire thread and have thoroughly enjoyed it!
I'm really glad I start this thread, though it seemed silly at the time, but I figured what the heck, why not ask. Now I'm glad, I have not only learned so many interesting tidbits about people, but have learned interesting facts as well, things I had no idea of.

I am the mother of 3 sons and when they were young I told them that we did not live in a democracy but a monarch and I was the Queen and dad was the King. What we said was law. They all have grown up to be upstanding young men that graduated from college and have great jobs. Must have done something right.
