Ohh... little bear... he was almost dancing with excitement today!! He was walking along, minding his own business, when he saw it. Oh my goodness... a whole village that was exactly the right size for little bear!

The houses were the right size! The church was the right size! The grain elevator was the right size! There was a whole little town here, just perfect for him. He decided to call it Bearville... although he did dither about calling it Bearistavilla... but Bearville flowed off the tongue better.

 Oh boy... little bear was all ready to phone the moving company (to move his favourite chair) when he noticed one teensy-weensy, itsty-bitsy detail. The whole village was enclosed behind a fence... with a lock. And there were no "For Sale" signs anywhere. This was clearly a gated-community... hmmph... little bear wasn't sure that he wanted to be part of a gated community. In fact, he knows that he doesn't want to be!!

Poor little bear... so excited and then so disappointed. He had gotten his hopes up only to have them dashed. And then to top it all off, he ended up being relieved that he had noticed the gated community part before he hired the movers! Little bear is learning to count his blessings... and he's also learning that things do work out for the best in the end. And if it looks like it's not working out for the best, maybe that's because the end hasn't been reached yet!

A good lesson for us as well... when things don't seem to be working out... maybe it's just because they haven't fully worked themselves out to the end yet!
