A Gift from Nature
Why Everyone, No Matter How Small and
Humble Has Something Important Say
My husband, my son and I went for a walk in the woods. We were amazed to see little blue birds flitting among the trees. I don't think they were Eastern Bluebirds. They must have been Indigo Buntings because they did not have a red breast and they were flying around in among the trees, whereas, I believe bluebirds like open meadows.
On our walk, my eight-year-old son found a snakeskin. Like any little boy, he was enthralled with it and wanted to keep it. He held it carefully all the way back to the car.
After our walk we drove to my mother's house so my son could show Grandma his snakeskin. My sister was visiting and my mother was interested in talking to her, so my son played with some lego blocks. He tried to show Grandma the snake skin, but she was nearly deaf and couldn't understand what he was saying. After a while, we went home.
While I was making dinner, I go a call from my mother. She was frantic. My sister was helping her clean up after we left and found the snake skin under the sofa. They had spent the last hour moving furniture trying to find the snake that had crawled out of that skin.
