My possum's leap of Faith.



"Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith."

I was admiring our very first snow of the year early the other morning.

As the snowflakes fell I could see in the distance, my large possum crawling slowly

on top of the fence.

It's lived in my backyard for several months now. It reached a point where it had

to either go back, climb off of the fence or somehow get across the opening.

He (it might be a she) steadied itself and for a few minutes I thought that it was giving up.

But then all of a sudden it stood up (with it's little paws aimed towards the sky),

and stretched it's fat little body. 

In one single motion it plopped over the one foot opening and for a few seconds

held on for dear life.

But soon he was back on the fence line crawling back home.

No turning back, huh?

You have to trust your own instincts.

Nothing is guaranteed - so go for it!

Make it a great dia!
