Melinda was the first one to spot this Teddy Bear, sitting as he is on a rock wall at the edge of our yard along the sidewalk in front of our house. I snapped this picture a couple of days ago but decided to use it today since the bear is still there.
What does his presence mean?
I have the sad feeling that perhaps some toddler being pushed in a stroller dropped his beloved bear in front of our house, a tragic circumstance unbeknownst to the stroller-pushing adult. Then I feel a little upbeat imagining that some other person came along and, spotting the stuffed bear in a prone position on the sidewalk, picked him up and set up to sit hopefully on our rockery.
Will the child owner return to find him? That is the critical question.
