Happy Skating Bear

This is not a highly intellectual post. (All right, I heard that! You just said, "So when has she made a 'highly intellectual post?'") If intelligence is what you're looking for I can give you a couple of really good blog sites to check out. (I won't be taking on the pressure of sounding even vaguely intelligent anytime soon.)

They say you should keep things in/around your home that make you feel good. This skating bear makes me feel good every time I look at him.

I suppose he was meant to be an ornament hung on the Christmas tree but I hang him on a peg on a drying rack in our bathroom every year after the holiday decorations are put away.

It's easy to see he doesn't have a care in the world. This bear is living in the moment. Nothing is more important than the good time he's having pumping away on his skates, effortlessly covering miles of smooooth ice. Yeah, that's what I want in my life: smooth ice.


  1. Oh, yes! Everybody needs a skating bear. In college, I had an ornament of a little girl kissing a caribou on the nose that similarly lifted my spirits--and I kept that one up after Christmas, too!

    Today, YOU are my skating bear-- your comment on my post made my day!!!
