Two frogs fell into a can of cream,
Or so I've heard it told:
The sides of the can were shiny and steep,
The cream was deep and cold.
"O, what's the use?" croaked Number 1.
Goodbye, my friends! Goodbye, sad world!"
But Number 2, of sterner stuff,
Dog-paddled in surprise,
The while he wiped his creamy face
And dried his creamy eyes.
"I'll swim awhile, at least," he said -
Or so I've heard he said;
"It really wouldn't help the world
If one more frog were dead."
An hour or two he kicked and swam,
Not once he stopped to mutter,
But kicked and kicked and swam and kicked,
Then hopped out, via butter!

It makes me laugh to excuse myself saying, "I have a broken arm" because when I was a child my mother used to ask, "What's wrong with you? Do you have a broken arm?"
Actually, my doctor is some kind of special. He has gone out of his way to find extra information to make my life better. Also, the staples are gone and, although I have to be careful, I get to return to my new part time job. Since Ms. Osa goes with me, this will be happy.
I am so excited about the future, that the arm just seems to highlight all the good things in my world.
I'd enjoy hearing from you.

I like the way kids say it:
"It's All Good."
I've been taking a terrific class on Troward. It's made me feel more at home with myself. Tonight is the last night of it, and I'm going to miss the on-going conversation about it all. But, I know it's helped me tremendously find mySelf again.
I had surgery on my busted up arm. Golly! Who knew it would hurt more to fix than to break? I'm mending, though and - even though this sounds a little silly, I'm looking forward to all the ways of Increase I will see in order to pay for the assistance I've had (and will continue to receive) at the hospital. (Yes, you got it - no insurance - pre-existing - oh well, God takes very good care of His kids.)
This will make me far more grateful for the "job."
I'm excited about my future.
What's up at your house?

Okay, That's wonderful. With that in mind I'll report that my future is sitting on this desk and I am happily growing into it - or the idea of it - or the adventure of it . . . However that works - which is what I'm learning, so I don't have to "know" the concept enough today to explain it. Isn't it the most confusing fun to attempt? All I know is my new lesson plan, which is about my life from now on - is sitting right here in front of me and I am happy.
