The Color of the Day Is...Teddy Bears??!

WHAT?! Teddy bears isn't a color...is it? Well, actually, today's post is going to be a bit different. Today's post is dedicated to the memory of my 'baby' sister Tammy.

You see, Tammy's birthday was on Friday. She would have been 38...but God had other plans for her. She passed away from cancer on April 10th, 2006. So, this week has been really rough on me, and I needed to do this today so I can get back my rapidly deteriorating 'even keel' and move forward for another year. She was my best, and some times only, friend in the whole world, and I really miss her. This isn't for sympathy, mind you. It's more of a celebration. Tammy was a wonderful person, trusting me without question no matter how much trouble I got us into...and believe me, I got us into plenty! Being only 21 months apart, we were inseperable.

So, today we have both teddy bears and lilacs...Tammy's favorite things. Now, I know I already did purple, but lilac is different (hey, it's my blog, I can split hairs if I want!). Lilacs come in many different shades of purple...right?! :)

Here is a terrific teddy bear book mark from lilblackdog's shop:

I hope you're feeling ok ... I'm so sorry for the loss of Tammy. And I'm sure she must be so happy that you're keeping her alive in spirit. :)
