We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

Over Thanksgiving, I had the privilege of spending time with The Solider’s family. His 2 sweet nieces cuddled and played with me the whole time, and encouraged me to read We’re Going on a Bear HuntIt’s a totally cute book and I would highly recommend it for any child – or adult. At the time, I enjoyed reading the book, but now, one paragraph is really resonating:

We can’t go over it.

We can’t go under it.

Oh no!

We’ve got to go through it.

And, woah, did it hit me like a 500 pound brown bear.

That’s how we have to approach all of life’s hurtles: We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. Oh no! We’ve got to go THROUGH it.

Many times I’ve said that I just want to sleep until the hurt is over. Fast forward (Wavy blur effect accompanied by a dream harp sound) I’d be awoken by my adorable hubbs kissing my forehead from what turned out to be a quick nap…and just like Eminem’s surprise Oscar performance, I Snap Back to Reality.

But, think about it – most of life’s fun happens on the way through it. And I’d like to be awake as the whole thing unfolds. It’s kinda like that meme:

I can’t even imagine what outrageous, crazy, funny, over the top, oh-my-gosh-you-won’t-believe-it kind of things are going to happen while my next season is being written. Will an old character emerge from the past? Will a new cast member be added? Stay tuned.
