A Special Blessing

Thank You, Lord for the extra special moments You bless our days with!  
While Clara, Hil and I were out taking a little walk yesterday we made an absolutely adorable find... this sweet little turtle!  He was such a cutie and hadn't seemed to have learned much yet about hiding in his shell.  He'd stick his head and legs in occasionally, but spent quite a bit of time with them out.  And when he thought he had a chance to run, he could really move.  As you can tell from the pictures, our little girl GREATLY enjoyed the experience.  She named him Mr. Turtle.  Hilkiah wasn't nearly as impressed.  When I did let him hold the little guy at one point, as soon as the turtle tried to run, Hil quickly dropped him.  Thankfully, as far as I know, turtle was not hurt.  

Clara wanted to bring Mr. Turtle home to show Daddy, but the pictures are our souvenir of a special moment and experience the Lord blessed us with.  

Don't miss Hilkiah's birthday post below!  :-)
