Paddling' like Madalyn

Years ago I heard a story about a frog named Madalyn. She fell into a pail of milk and could not get out no matter how hard she tried. She just knew that this would be the end, she would drown. But Madalyn just would not, could not give up. Exhausted as she was, she just kept paddling. She paddled all night long and to her surprise, she had churned the milk into butter and was able to jump out of the pail.

So, I always keep this little story in the back of my mind - especially when things pile up. They are for me right now, so I am paddlin' like Madalyn

Ladies, sisters - I hope we can all get our feet on solid ground (or butter)!

To quote Kari -

Miles go love!

right now for you sounds exhausting and challenging. I send you some California sunshine and scent of ocean and lots of empathy cause I've been in that pail plenty of times myself:)

The pail just got a little deeper. My daughter told me she is moving out tomorrow - to Canada to live with her boyfriend.

Much anxiety...
