So, the little frog stayed in the ivy and made it her home...
One morning, the lady took the planter down into the garden and started watering it. This planter had a small reservoir on one side to let the water drain out. She tipped the planter to drain the water out. Then she notice that something was in the water well... holding on for dear life.
"Well, hello there." she said.
The lady carefully returned the planter to the porch and thought about how careless she had been carrying the ivy down into the garden to water it. The little frog had gone along for the ride and didn't even jump out when she watered the plant. It must have wanted to be in this planter awfully bad to stay inside, even when the water was filling the well... even when the planter was moving.
The little frog just stayed in the well, filled with water, and watched her.
"Please be careful next time, lady. This is my home too."
"Maybe you could just use the watering can and water the ivy right here."
"Next time...", she said to herself, "I will look before I water anything. I didn't know this little frog lived here, in the ivy, but I do now and once you know that someone's life is in your hands and relies on you for safety, you need to take care of it."
Always be kind to anything that needs your help because all life is fragile.
The little frog is counting on you.
