The Canadian VisitorFor 2013 Sian's Story Telling Sunday is about telling tales and stories about the thing that are precious to you.
I will let My Precious tell his own story
"Hello, my name is Freckles and I have been Karen's faithful friend for over 50 years. I first met Karen when I was about 5 and she was about 4. I was visiting from Canada with my then owner Grace (known to Karen as Auntie Grace but in fact she was Great Aunt Grace). The intention was that we would only come over for a short visit - Grace's visit lasted 3 years and mine has been over 50. You see when Grace saw how much Karen loved me she couldn't bear to take me back with her when she returned and so left me here.
I was made especially for Grace by her daughter-in-law and meant so much to her. You see not long after I was created she died. I think that prompted our visit to England. Grace must have loved Karen very, very much too as to part with me must have been such a hard thing to do. It's a strange thing really because as much as Karen loves her Gracia (see the connection) she has never found it in her heart to part with me to her. I know one day I will have a new friend but for now I am happy to sit in Karen's bedroom and watch over her as I am sure that's what Grace would want me to do."
So that is the story of my precious. Story told for Sian's Story Telling Sunday (pop over to her blog to see what other precious things are telling their stories and layout made for Miss Smith's Telling Tales class.
