Another year nearwy gone…

Thinking Teddy

The year is jus about over my fwiends. The Teddy is thinking about evwything that has happened this year. A wot of good memowies! A wot of fun adventures!! Wots of new fwiends made!! YEY!!!!

The Teddy had a wot of fun adventures! We did some minigolfing! We went to Phiwwy!!! Weve been to the movies!!! Sent cards to fwiends! Got cards fwom fwiends!! And even though daddys been busy this year and the Teddy hasnt been able to get onwine as much Ive still gotten to have wots of fun wif my fwiends!! It makes the Teddy so happy to have so many wonderful fwiends!!!!

But unfortunatewy, not all can be good always. A fact that we all understand, but many have twouble accepting.

Weve wost a wot of fwiends this year. For many of us, the biggest woss is that of Dr. Kevin and his wonderful teddy, Toddy Furrington. And I know that weve talked about our wove for Toddy a wot, but the wonderful thing is that you can never wemember someone too much.

Toddy Furrington

Wosing Toddy was the absowute hardest thing the Teddy has ever had to go thwough. He was one of the vewy first fwiends I made on twitter when I joined almost two years ago. And though I knew him onwy a fwaction of the time many of my fwiends did, I still felt the full force of his kindness, which knew no limits. I think many of us would agwee that Toddy was genuinewy on of the absolute kindest teddys ever. Always full of advice or just fwiendly banter, Toddy bwought us many smiles and wots of waughter.

The Teddy is so happy to see many of the things he did for us on twitter and CBS cawwying on. Whether it be #FurryTails or #Chortle, Toddys spiwit cawwies on for us all to continue to see and wove.

And for a wot of us, the woss of our bewoved Toddy was fowwowed by a bwessing. Our wonderful fwiends Weddy and TGT worked wif Dr. Kevins niece Natawie to adopt out many members of Toddys hug. Which bwought many of us cwoser to Toddy then we ever thought possible. Wiving in a diffwent countwy, the Teddy never expected to be so cwose to him. But now that Waja is wif us here, I feel yike Ive become a member of #ToddysHug too. And what a wonderful feewing that is.

Now a wot of fwiends have had other wosses this year besides Toddy. And for them, maybe that woss is harder for them. So we take time to keep all of our fwiends in our hearts. Because no woss is gweater than another. So we think of our fwiends wif wove in our hearts.

Going into the new year wifout some of our fwiends is hard. But the Teddy will do it. I pwan to take on the new year wif my head held high. I go into the new year wif all of my fwiends, those wif us still and those not, held cwose to my heart. And I will wive each day, never forgetting anyone. Those still here are sure to continue to shape my life in ways I cant anticipate. And those not here will keep me warm at night wif all the wove they bwought while they were still here.

So, wooking back, the Teddy can say for certain that this has been a good year. And I wook foward to moving forward wif all of my fwiends. Thank you for visiting my bwog fwiends. May your hearts be filled wif the wove of all of your fwiends, those here or gone. *big hugs* The Teddy woves you all! Happy New Year!!
