When I no longer have to build a fire in the wood stove every morning, the dog that lives with us and I go out on the west porch for breakfast. This morning her line got caught on an old rotten stump. As soon as she realized she was stuck, she barked for me to come and get her un-stuck.
She reminded me that when I realize I'm stuck, I can wait to ask for help as long as I want. Or I can just ask right away.
