If I Were A Bear

This morning my sweet friend Jae stopped by.  She gave me this little story.   I thought it was so perfect for my post today.

                                                 If I Were A Bear
In this life I am a woman.  In my next life, I would like to come back as a bear.  When you're a bear, you get to hibernate.  You do nothing but sleep for six months.  I could deal with that.
Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid.  I could deal with that too.
When you're a girl bear, you birth your children who are the size of walnuts, while you're sleeping, and wake up to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs.  I could deal with that too.
If you're a Mama bear, everyone knows you mean business.  You swat anyone who bothers your cubs.  If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too.  I could deal with that.
If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling.  He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Happy Friday.  Boy, what a week it's been.  We have an invitation to meet friends Ron and Sue out on the lake.  Sure sounds lovely and oh so tempting.  I could use a day like that!!!
Go make it a great weekend, wherever you are, and whatever you are doing with it!

XO Kris

Hope you get to meet your friends at the lake. That sounds like the perfect way to end the week. I often describe myself as a mama bear, so that story was perfect. :)

Enjoy your weekend!
