The Whale

A female humpback whale who had became entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle  to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.  
 A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate ) and radioed an environmental group for help.  Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only  way to save her was to dive in and untangle  her.  They worked for hours with curved knives and  eventually freed her.  
When  she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like  joyous circles.  She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them.  Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.  The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth  said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he  will never be the same.
May  you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you. And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.
