Turkey Trot: Angel Message

An angel tapped me on my shoulder and my day got off with a happy boost.  What joy to watch a family of wild turkeys trot down the driveway...hens, chicks and papa...gobbling on the run.  Nine in all.  Whenever a turkey appears, it's a sign to be grateful for all the good already present now, and be willingly to share with others. 

Turkeys are fast movers and can fly up to 55 mph and run up to 25 mph.  They can see in color and their daytime vision is three times better than a human.  An adult turkey has approximately 1,500 feathers and up to a mile away, you can hear a gobble.   The wild turkey was Ben Franklin's preference for the national bird because of its proud demeanor and protective instincts.  


I never imagined we'd live so close to nature that a parade of wild turkeys would come down the driveway and peek in the porch door.  But that's what can happen when guided by angels.  

 June is National Turkey Lover's Month.  A time for us all to be thankful for the many blessings we have.  And one of the biggest gifts, not to be taken for granted, is the joy and comfort of knowing we are never alone.  God's angels are with us.

Love and peace,
