Will You Admit It?

Though many might never admit it publicly, a new survey finds that four in ten adult Americans still sleep with a teddy bear at night. And many of those bears are the same bears kept from childhood. Build-A-Bear Workshop commissioned a new survey that showed “Four in ten American adults still sleep with a stuffed animal.”

Survey: More than half of the survey participants indicated they currently owned a stuffed animal, and 40 percent indicated the toy joins them at bedtime. Perhaps most surprisingly, most of the plush toys out there are no spring chickens — 56 percent of those polled said that they’ve held onto their favorite stuffed animal from childhood for at least two decades.
This perhaps is a reflection of the fact that 72 percent of respondents want to keep their stuffed animal forever.

Describe the stuffed animal have you kept since childhood?

What are you thankful for?

The More I Verbalize What I Am Thankful for the less cloudy my heart feels!– Lisa TerKeurst

Spiritual Fullness in Christ
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
