Raining Cats and Dogs

When I started this blogging project, the thought was to try and go through each bear as to age. But that needs to be switched up.

Today it is raining outside. I think it may have rained all night, which is fine - we need it. But this little girl bear speaks volumes and needed to be introduced first. Please meet Bearington Bear: "Raining Cats and Dogs" (retired 2007). Sounds like that's her given Indian name, doesn't it.

She represents all those times when we wonder, "When will it all stop?" If it's not one thing, it's another. What could possibly happen next. We've all had those times and eras in our lives. And Bill and I are going through another one right now.

I get a kick out of her, because she's got her raincoat on to repel the rain (mishaps) but she's grabbed on to a cat and a dog (particular raindrops). She teaches me a great life lesson: Let a lot of life's bad or unhappy occurrences slide off of you, but grab ahold of a couple of important ones that need to be learned from. Life is tough - but this little gal is gunna make it through, don't you think?
