With arms outstretched I thank. With heart beating gratefully I love. With body
in health I jump for joy. With spirit full I live. ~Terri Guillemets
Oh, my friends, imagine my great delight this morning as I entered the coop to tend my flock and discovered not one, but four new eggs. My flock is officially laying for me, after these many long months of having to buy eggs at the store. I was looking forward to this day so very much.
First eggs are quite small. So small that I could hold four in one hand. Or, could I?
I dropped one.
The hens came running to see. They hardly even know what eggs are at this point, as only four of them are producing.
So they are curious.
*sigh* It was a regrettable loss, but I still had three. Two for my breakfast and one for Sarah.
Fried in a cast iron pan in plenty of butter, I even got to eat them off a Christmas fiestaware plate.
Next to me at the table, Sarah ate her small egg right up and then asked for more, so I gave her the rest of mine.
In other news, look at my Ethan. Isn’t he handsome? This is how he dressed for school today. Apparently, the basketball team has to dress up on game days.
The first thing I did this morning was iron his shirt and tie his tie. Then, I took a picture.
Right now? At this moment? I love my life. Thank you, Father.
