James, This is one of the best things you have shared with your subscribers. To learn to keep "swimming" even when down and out, either financially and/or emotionally, is key in relationships and I am glad you wrote this short story. Caring for and about others is a Godly thing and it also takes one's mind off of your own problems as well as puts them in proper prospective. Today I was feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities, relationships, and demands on me, and when I read this it put me back on track. Thank you. Dianne
