Hang In There!

Hang In There
"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."
~Harriet Beecher Stowe~
We have all been there at some point in our lives haven't we?  I just loved this quote, along with this photo. With a little cropping, I added a filter and then a texture layer. The title came next. A pretty powerful message for this little guy to deliver!
Our daughter Kathy, took this photo of Mike, her son and our grandson, holding this colorful amphibian like creature. Mike, caught Mr. Frog, with a fishing lure, quite by accident the other day. He carefully removed the hook from his mouth and released him back into the pond. He struggled for a while, but posed reluctantly for this photo to be captured. In a pretty tight place, would't you say. 
Thank goodness for boys and their fondness for slimy quick moving little critters. I guarantee you that between my daughter and I, this photo would have never happened. Cute to look at, but holding him!? We left  that one up to Mike! 
I am sure froggy may have suffered a bit of a sore throat and maybe even a bruised ego, but alive and well he survived the day. He just hung in there! 

Pin It!

We have been unindated with toads and frogs this year. There are tadpoles in every water receptacle outside.

This little guy is cute. I love your description of "hanging in there." :)
