DO YOU EVER...

...have those times when you come upon something in the store and it CALLS your name?  My husband has this happen frequently.  And I never believed that it was real.  My favorite story was when he was fresh off his mission and was in the store with his mom.  He walked by the cutest white GUND polar bear.  It was calling his name, or so he claimed.  His mom relented and bought that bear for him, he still has it.  Yesterday I had to run to the store to pick up an item that I was missing from a recipe.  It was a quick trip.  As I was hurrying down a particular aisle, I noticed out of the corner of my eye a display basket of stuffed animals.  I never pay attention to those things.  I'm too cheap.  But as I was rushing past, I happened to see a little gray trunk peeking out amongst the sea of animals.  I stopped dead in my tracks.  I pulled out the cutest little baby elephant.  He was calling my name.  I can't help but have an affection towards these cute little animals.  After all, they remind of Ben.  So I bought him, stuck him in my cute little backpack and he now is my constant little friend.  I blame Benny.

Becky -- hi. My name is Jenny Green. I've been following your blog for awhile. When Ben died, I lost it. Something happens when one blogs...you get a glimpse into someone else's life, and I felt Benjamin's spirit through your words and pictures. I have admired your strength and faith for a while now. I have been working on a little project for a bit now. I just recently contacted Tara...and she's joining the ranks. today she told me that she passed the information along to you as well. Please read the information through. Think about it. And then email me. I have something specific to your family that I feel very strongly about that I'd like to propose.

I hope that sweet little elephant is keeping you warm and cozy.

Couldn't have happened to a better person. :) I am glad he call to you. He is adorable.

He is adorable! Glad his trunk was peeking out of the basket so you could find him--he was calling your name, you know! Benji's way of saying "Hi Mom, I'm over here!"
