Things that I learned from my Teddy Bear

When you think about it, there's a lot that you can learn about life and about being a good friend from a teddy bear. Here are a few things that I have learned.

1. Where you are isn't nearly as important as who you are with.
2. When communicating with a loved one, listening is much more important than talking.
3. There is nothing like the comfort that an old friend provides.
4. A bear hug goes a long way to changing a bad day.
5. Sometimes the most important part of being a friend, is just BEING THERE.
6. It's ok to let your inside stuffing show sometimes.
7. Love will change you, but it won't make you any less beautiful, in fact, it will make you more beautiful in the eyes of those who love you.
8. Everyone needs someone to hold on to.
9. There is no such thing as too many kisses, in the morning, in the middle of the night... time doesn't matter, only love does.
10. Someone has to keep their eyes open all the time!

If we all lived our lives like a teddy bear, I think that the world would be a pretty wonderful place.
