Here’s a cute tale I received from Faye in Kentucky a few days ago. The swimming bit struck a cord because we’re taking Zachary to Swimming lessons this week (last week too.).
Also, I was thinking about a friend I had during my work days. Some days you would ask him how he was doing, and he would reply, “Kicking faintly.” Well, I hope you are doing better that kicking faintly. We need to keep kicking and keep swimming. Read on…
Two frogs fell into a deep cream bowl.
One was an optimistic soul.
But the other took the gloomy view.
"We'll drown," he lamented without much ado.
And with a last despairing cry,
He flung up his legs and said "Goodbye."
Quote the other frog with a steadfast grin,
"I can't get out but I won't give in,
I'll just swim around till my strength is spent,
Then I'll die the more content."
Bravely he swam to work his scheme,
And his struggles began to churn the cream.
The more he swam, his legs a flutter,
The more the cream turned into butter.
