We have a number of squirrels who live in the pecan trees at our court-
house. I recently noticed that one of them is missing his tail. Being an amateur
photographer, I set about to capture the unfortunate one for my wildlife col-
lection. Yesterday I caught him out on the lawn searching for pecans. I got a
picture that clearly shows his misfortune. I continued to watch him and shortly
thereafter he got a pecan and scurried up a tree. He was kind enough to pose
for me, again. In downloading these shots to my computer, it came to me that
this little creature was a great inspiration.
I’m so sick of hearing bad news I think it is time for the overwhelming spirit
that lives within each of us to step up, step out, and overcome the negativity.
I hope everyone who sees my little friend, Bob (named for his bobbed-tail)
will get a laugh and a lift out of it.
May God Richly Bless You Today!
