These are a few of the lessons learned tonight from Paddington Bear and his Aunt Lucy.
If we are kind and polite, the world will be right.
Always keep a marmalade sandwich in your hat in case of emergency.
When you see good you should do, do it – not because you are getting paid or for how you will be paid back. Do it just because it is the right thing to do.
Be a positive part of someone else’s day.
All you need to do to brighten someone’s day is to add a bit of sugar – through a smile, a friendly hello, or a good deed.
If you look for the good in people, you will find it.
It sometimes takes a children’s movie to remind me of what I already know, but quickly forget in the hustle and bustle. Thank you, Paddington.
