Adorable Animals With A Message

Always try to help a friend in need
Always try to see the glass half full
Be conscious of your appearance
Believe in yourself
Don't waste food
Express yourself creatively
Hold on to good friends
It will get better
Live up to your name
Love your friends no matter who they are
Say "I love you" often
Watch your step
Weight is just a number
