With the focus of yesterday's blog on an acorn falling on my head, you can imagine my surprise to find one presented in a more tender way this morning. When I turned my chair around to sit down, a little acorn was already occupying my seat! Not having an oak tree in our yard, I wondered about its timely delivery. Soon a feisty squirrel appeared, chattering on the oak tree next door. His bushy tail flicking, he was giving Elliot and me the business. " Do you want to be in the blog?" I playfully asked, knowing squirrel is about keeping a balance between work and play. Hurrying off to get my camera, he was still up high, chattering and eating a nut. He kept up his rowdy routine between bites long enough for me to get this photo.
An acorn represents raw potential ...amazing how a mighty oak comes from such a small seed. That one little nut holds the promise of acres and acres of acorns, as each oak shares its harvest, it is greatly multiplied. Squirrel as a gatherer, also prepares for the future by burying some of his cache, but takes time to savor the fruit in the moment.
I was thankful he shared by planting one in my chair this morning. May I always be as generous
Love and joyful blessings,
