I'm so spoiled!
827. This morning Jaan found a Luna moth down by the creek! It was perfectly fresh, and still soft from having just come out of its cocoon. We carried it halfway up to the house, and then had Will come down to see and photograph it. It wasn't ready to fly yet, so we put in a a box, and it's still resting right here by me. It will probably fly off tonight. After all the excitement, we headed back down to the creek. We were talking about our special gift from God. Jaan said, "Maybe God will give us another one." I told him that I had only seen a few in my whole life, but you never know. Jaan and Raia got back into their mud hole. I sat back down, and I did look over at where the moth had been. I saw. . . no, it couldn't be! Surely, it was just a leaf. But I walked over to check, and yes, there was a second one, in exactly the same place! More excitement, more pictures, more praise. . . .
(Feel free to comment. This gift is too special not to talk about.)
