My Story . . . i heart faces

We've all heard the saying, "If you can make your avocation, your vocation, you'll never work another day in your life?"  Well, for now, this is true for me.  I have had a vacation from the corporate world going on 8 years now, and I love it.  

Here is the definition:
vacation |vāˈkā sh ən; və-|
1 an extended period of recreation.
2 the action of leaving something one previously occupied.

SO, for ME, my current vocation is actually a vacation!  I love it an wouldn't change it for the world.  The pictures from this one morning is one reason why.  So, without any further ado (please forgive the quality of them as well as they are all SOOC). . . .

This is a TRUE story of Bear Bunny, none of this is stages; what you are about to see is real-life in action. Yes, we are well aware that technically this animal is a bunny bear, BUT, try telling that to a three-year-old. So, his name is Bear Bunny. Sunshine LOVES her bear bunny. She had a little bengal tiger who was her little lovey, but he has been missing for many weeks (we are still offering this up to our Lord in prayer knowing that He will provide, if she really, truly NEEDS it). So now her little bear bunny has become her little buddy and she has been taking everywhere. AND, she is certain to not loose him. Here is a little pictorial of an afternoon they recently shared together.

"Hey, Mom, check out Bear Bunny and me; he's SO CUTE!"


"Oh, no, Bear Bunny, I'll save you!"

"No, don't go anywhere, I'll keep my eyes on you!"

"Really, I will!"

"Well, I do have to look where I'm going, so maybe I'll take them off of you for just a minute."

"Hey, Mom, check us out," (again).

"Oh, Bear Bunny, I LOVE you!"

"You are my buddy and I just love being with you."

"Everywhere I go! So, HOLD ON!"

"Let's go out on the open road together."

"Ooops!" (do you see that little speck in the middle of the street to the right of the car?)

Even Socrates is thinking this is becoming quite ridiculous.

"Whoosh, that was close, saved you again," with an assist from Socrates.

Socrates is just riding along minding his own business.

Check out his rad moves (with no training wheels!)

"Oh, Bear Bunny, I'll save you!"

"Here I come!"

"Here I am!"

"Are you okay?"

"I love you . . . .

. . . . so much!"

"I'm not going to let you fall again, even if I have to hold on with my teeth!"

But she did drop him.
This is when Socrates steps in again with the assist and HE'S not going to let him get away.

But, he does.

So, who ends up with Bear Bunny and really takes care of him? Yes, Mom! Bear Bunny needs to stay inside. At least they both realized that Bear Bunny needed a little more protecting outside then they could provide. . . . recognizing limitations is a good thing; for some of us, it just takes a little longer.

Have a blessed day!
