". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Cause for Celebration

Evan fell in the creek at the park yesterday.

He didn't cry.

He walked home in wet clothes.

When he got home, he calmly showed me the hole in his pants. He said, "I took a risk, Mom."

I smiled and gave him a thumbs up. For a highly sensitive child who is averse to risk-taking and prone to worry, holes and dirt are badges of honor.
