"It is never too late to have a happy childhood."
~ Tom Robbins ~
I loved stuffed animals when I was a girl. They were my closest friends and confidants. I could tell them things and share myself with them in a way that I could not with living humans. And every once in a while, even as an adult, I come across one that warms my heart and carries me back to that original stuffed animal feeling of love, comfort, and the surety that everything is, and always will be, absolutely ok.
In the right circumstances, a stuffed animal can make a pretty good friend.
