Bear’s Princess… where’s Amy? Amy is my heart’s focus… Amy’s Castle in plain sight… Amy isn’t.
In Bear’s dream he saw the castle but lost Amy again. Amy always lost it seemed to him.
Amy’s my princess. Valentine’s Day… Bear planned a bouquet of red roses for Amy.
Bear’s heart ached for Amy. Her reaction… the red roses a perfect gift… she would cry happy tears… smile and give him a hug.
Bear’s Princess Amy embraced Bear in a BearHug. The two of them encircled by swirling white mists from the ocean of Bear’s dream world.
Valentine’s Day the perfect day to carry out his plan. Bear woke knowing his reason for the day.
“It’s time to set my plan in motion. Where do I find beautiful red roses for Amy?” asked Bear.
“I know red roses exist… who sold them? I have seen them before… where… the country side or city?
Bear’s Princess… Love
Valentine’s Day… the day known for love. Bear’s Princess would be impressed.
Bear asked everyone, “Have you seen red roses? Where do I buy red roses?
Focus,” Bear said outloud. “I know focus brings me the results I want.
I search high and low for red roses with laser focus. As a man thinks so is he.
My laser focus secures red roses for Bear’s Princess. Beautiful red roses for Valentine’s Day.
Do it now!,” Bear told himself. “My dreams are coming true as Og Mandino says… ‘I paint this day with laughter.'”
Bear envisioned fields of beautiful red roses. Walls climbed by red roses.
Bear danced. BearHugs to himself… Bear’s Princess impressed with roses.
Did Amy have any thoughts of King Richard? Amy overwhelmed by Bear’s beautiful red roses… any thoughts of the King disappear just like morning fog.
Red Rose with Dew Drops
Bear’s Path wound down the mountain from Amy’s Castle. He would find roses between the castle and the town.
There’s no place like Amy’s Castle. He remembered his smiles as he located her at last in her castle.
“Common sense and logic tell me roses are nearby. I almost smell the roses,” Bear said.
More roses planted for Valentine’s Day. Business makes more money.
“Yes, I need plan B in case the roses are all sold,” Bear said outloud. “What is that plan?”
Bear had learned to ask himself questions. His mind would give him answers.
He didn’t get answers immediately. Sometimes the answers came to him after a night’s sleep.
The answers came when he was the most relaxed. His mind couldn’t be forced… it needed to be relaxed.
“What else did Bear’s Princess like? Yes, red roses with dew drops.
Amy & Horse
Amy likes horses. Bear remembered her prancing white horse.
“What would Amy like for her horse? Oats?
Who, what, where, and how were questions to ask himself and others. Why was a question people didn’t like… he asked the “why” to himself only.
Why ‘why’ was a hard question for others he didn’t know. It didn’t bother him when he asked himself.”
Bear gave up asking questions out loud. Soon his mind would give answers… maybe after a good night’s sleep.
“Odd,” Bear thought to himself, “if I take a break and switch my focus that gives my mind answers too. I guess that’s like relaxing my mind.
Oh yes, I get my mind relaxed by taking deep breaths. Answers come then too.
The best one is waking up in the morning. After I have slept all night I get answers… some people think I hibernate.”
I M Possible
“Bear’s Princess liked sunshine, blue skies and fluffy white clouds. How would Bear give her those?
Those are impossible to recreate. They are too high up for me,” said Bear.
“Valentine’s Day is hard on me,” said Bear. “I have to think too much.”
The wind overheard Bear, “Remember Bear what thoughts you think you become. As a man thinks so is he.
Please rephrase those last two sentences. Remember Bear your mind believes what you tell it.
Do you want some help? If you ask me I will help you,” said the wind.
“Bear since you asked let’s do one together. Take the word impossible.
Let’s make it three words. You first Bear.
Bear said, “I.”
The wind said, “M.”
Bear said, “Possible.”
Let’s say it together said the wind, “I M Possible.”
Bear said excitedly, “I M Possible. We said that together!
That was fun!” said Bear.
“Those are too high for me! What does ‘those’ mean?
Clouds. What can be done with those words?
What did Og Mandino say? ‘I paint this day with laughter’.
I paint a funny dragon with a Valentine’s Day heart! Amy likes dragons.”
Bear said, “I paint those clouds too! They are just right for me.”
The wind repeated Bear’s first words, “Valentine’s Day is hard on me. I have to think too much.
What can be done with those words?” asked the wind.
“Valentine’s Day is fun. Thinking is fun,” said Bear
“See as a man thinks so is he. Now go to sleep and see what answers your mind gives you in the morning,” said the wind.
Bear yawned and stretched. He woke up knowing he could take on the world and win.
“Where is the wind? Hmmm… no answer.
I have an answer. I will paint Amy beautiful red roses for Valentine’s Day.
Bear’s Princess will always have roses. Amy will remember this gift.
Focus on Roses?
Valentine’s Day is fun!” said Bear. “This is the day before Valentine’s Day.
Bear’s Princess will remember this Valentine’s Day as the best. A surprise awaits her.”
His stride picked up as he confidently marched to town. He knew what he would buy.
Paints and brushes. Amy would have the most beautiful red roses ever.
A bell chimed in the distance. The ring reminded Bear… of a ring for Amy… he didn’t have one.
Bear’s Path took a sharp right turn around the corner. He stumbled into a cart.
The cart pushed by a beautiful woman. The cart almost overturned.
Bear stopped long enough to help her. Both of them stabilized the cart.
“What makes you in such a hurry?” the woman asked Bear.
“It is the day before Valentine’s Day. Bear’s Princess needs a gift,” said Bear.
“I’m making her a painting of red roses. I need to buy paint and brushes.
Why do that? I have red roses at my house you can give her?” said the beautiful woman.
“You do! How amazing!,” said Bear.
“They won’t cost you anything. I need my rose bushes pruned.
Bear smiled from ear to ear. Just as he planned… red roses for Bear’s Princess!
How many acres of red roses did Bear prune? How many thorns did he pull ouf of his paws?’
What did Bear do without a ring for Amy? Did the red roses keep Amy’s thoughts focused on Bear?
Where is King Richard… is he friend or foe?
BearHugs ’til our next adventure,
Amy & Bear
