One day while my daughter Lauren and I were waiting for Kaleb (my son) to finish baseball practice, we stumbled across a pile of acorn tops. We looked up and realized we were standing underneath a giant acorn tree.
Hmmmmmmmmm - We decided we would find some food for the little squirrels that wonder into our yard. After hunting and hunting, we found one whole acorn. I’m guessing a squirrel herd already pilfered the place.
Last night, I found the acorn tucked in a safe place in her bedroom. I almost grabbed it to take it out to the backyard (for some lucky squirrel) but decided not to.
I figured that acorn deserved to be in a happy room with a very happy little girl who was so thrilled to find one whole acorn with her Mom…
I love how the little moments linger – (sometimes in the form of an acorn).
