April 20, 2014 – We had the best surprise for Mom this morning! Each hen dyed her egg either pink or yellow or light purple and then hand-painted a beautiful image on it as an Easter present for Mom. Peaches drew a lovely mountain scene. Violet painted flowers. Wilma drew herself wearing pearls and a crown. Dottie painted a portrait of the pullets as chicks. I couldn’t think of anything to draw. My mind was blank – an empty warehouse with the windows wide open. And then it hit me.
AHA! I drew a heart because I love Mom so very much.
Mom was certainly surprised when she opened the nest box of Coop #1, then Coop #2, and Coop #3. Before long, her basket was filled with joy.
That’s us… nature’s joy makers. It’s the best job on earth.
