Charlie Bear here.
I’m cool. I’m hip. I’m ready for a summer dip!
Turning the page into May is a big deal, don’t you think? Summer is almost here and with it maybe a dip or two in a swimming pool.
I love swimming. Well, it takes me a while to get used to the water, and it’s scary at first to not have anything under my feet, and the wetness bothers me a bit, but other than that I like it.
How about you? Are there things you like to do…once you get into them? Is it scary at first sometimes? Awkward feeling? But then when you plunge in do you enjoy it?
Mom Peep is always saying that verse about “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” She can be a real daredevil, like jumping over barricades to get to a parade in New York City, or sending in her writing to be published by John Gray in one of his first books called “Mars and Venus in Love” (John Gray loved it and printed all three single-spaced pages that she submitted), or when she took me in despite my spinning and snapping.
Oh, yes. If we didn’t do things with an element of fearlessness, I tend to think we might not do anything at all. And that would be a pity ’cause there are so many wonderful things out there just waiting to happen to YOU!
LEAP with me. Let’s bring on summer in a big way this year.
Wiggles and woofs to you,
