I call and ask what she's doing.

"I'm looking at a very big teddy bear in the living room."

"A very big teddy bear," I say.† "I see.† And why do you have a very big teddy bear in the living room?"

"It was a present!" she says.† "I love it."

I ask if it's from her boyfriend.† She says yes.† Actually, this is the third stuffed animal he's given her.

"Thatís very sweet," I say.

"No one ever gave me a stuffed animal before," she says.† "Never."

Seventy-nine years in the making.† I'm so glad my mom is happy.
