Meet Junie the Bear. Junie is an extraordinary Teddy Bear and holds a special importance to a friend of mine. She was created at “Build a Bear” and was a gift to my friend with meaningful ties.
If you're looking for a soft and cuddly children's story, this ISN'T it! So, turn back now if you want to keep your modesty intact.
Recently, Junie was let out of the trunk to celebrate National Bring Teddy Bear to Work Day on October 12th.
I had no idea such a day existed. Thank goodness this day exists for Junie. After what she's been through she deserves to have a day just to celebrate her.
This day meant she could finally see the bright light of day, breath the fresh crisp air of fall and return to the outside world that she had once enjoyed. The confines of the car trunk may be a safer place, but it's dark, hot and lonely in there.
Occasionally, she'll have flashbacks of happier times when she actually rode high and proud in the backseat.
