I had quite a treat today. I was putting together a small quilt, lost the plot and made hst's instead of pinwheels - the border was already cut and the pinwheels were going to be the cornerstones. I set it aside to regroup, looked out the window, and I'm so glad!!!
I had noticed this doe laying near the bushes all morning, and was sort of keeping an eye on her, hoping she wasn't in distress.
Pretty soon, she got up and came closer, to our peach [or is it pear] tree.
City girl that I am, I couldn't figure out why she kept her head at her back end.
She was in labor!!!!
Suddenly, there were two!!!!
And they trotted happily off to the woods.
Then I realized - if I had kept the plot, and made the pinwheels like I had designed, I would have missed this whole thing. I would have been so focused on my quilt, I never would have looked up. What a shame that would have been. Thank you Lord, for this precious gift!
I pray the Lord gives you gifts today too - don't forget to look for them!
