My Beloved loves me; I know he does. When I cam home tonight, I found a wonderful surprise in a trash can in the front yard. He told me that he had sighted a snake slithering around the edge of the fence and ran inside to get the grabber. It was gone when he returned. He heard Baxter barking under the azalea bush and then out he came with this treasure in his mouth.
Thankfully it was a box turtle and was fully secured inside its shell. No damage done.
I took him out of the trash can and waited patiently for him to emerge. He eventually warmed to me, gave me a few candids, and then began to leave. I decided to give him my legs and saw him safely across the busy road and into a cozy camellia bush.
Now to add a few more folks to my project. This is Sara. She is a sweetly tanned and freckled paralegal who works on the other side of my office. She has a precious 18-month-old daughter, Elise, who is never without monogrammed threads and a dotting family. She has the most beautiful eyes and studies everything with them. Sara's picture was of Elise riding on their dog--their very patient dog. I just love that age.
This is Donna, our office administrator (remember "REDRUM"). She spent the end of last week in San Antonio, Texas, attending a legal administrator's conference. She was inspired by motivational speakers who made her laugh and cry. One such speaker was Dr. Dale Henry of Tennessee who told them that there were two things good leaders never say, "That's not my job" and "I wish I had." To be a leader, you must be a servant to all. (It sounds like he studied the life of Christ.) Although she had a full schedule, she was able to visit the Tower of the Americas and the Alamo. Her picture was of the Tower of the Americas.
