Other dolls will come and go,but Raggedy Ann with always be the one doll closest to my heart. She just isn't a doll ...she is a dear friend. She came into my life at a very sad time in my childhood, and her big wide smile cheered me on to be happy! Since that time...she still continues to remind me that although our lives may have times of disappointment and grief.....there is always....ALWAYS....something to smile about and be thankful.....indeed!
Funny how something as simple as an old rag doll can conjure up sweet thoughts of yonder days.
