Now that you’ve done this I’m sure you have that feeling. Or at least for a moment you thought about that stuffed animal that at one time in your life was your best friend, your anchor or just an object of such significance that if it were left anywhere your family knew that it was a complete necessity to find it for you. That’s the simple power of this story and how we all connect to it. I got a nice reminder of that this week interviewing preschoolers about why their “stuffies” make them so happy.
There’s a bond there that’s not visible to the eye normally, but if you look carefully and really listen…you can see and hear it quite well.
