Have you ever heard the story about the little boy who loved his teddy bear so much that he squeezed and squeezed it until it actually fell into pieces and ceased being a teddy bear?

I've talked a number of times about love. There have been blogs about being a choice, love can equal letting go. Use the power of love to attract things into your life with the law of attraction.
