Pool Time


                        ''I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.''   I used to love to swim and just be in the pool.  With increased weakness, that pleasure got altered to just sitting on the steps. While I used to be able to swim the length of the pool, jump off the diving board, and retrieve objects off the floor of the deep end.... well, the steps just don't offer that excitement I desire.
                        Karla follows a young boy, Tripp Halstead, on Facebook who was permanently injured when a tree limb fell on him.  He uses this WaterWay Babies floation device in the pool.  Karla showed it to me and I ordered it with the hope of having some freedom in the pool.
                       Today was our trial run and it was a success.  It may look goofy and I need a little more practice, but it's worth it to me.  You can only fly, if you're willing to spread your wings and try.
