Grace in Small Things 108:365

1. i got startled when something landed on my arm yesterday & just as i was about to freak out that "ack! bug! on my arm! getitoff!!" i saw that it was just a ladybug. and then i smiled. i remembered a little saying my Gram used to repeat when she would find a ladybug in her house. she would go outside on the porch with it & release it saying "Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home! Your house is on fire, your children will burn!" which, wow, *morbid*. but still such a sweet memory. (don't judge me!)

2. the Sox won a series against the Rays! FINALLY.

3. we sang one of my very favorite hymns in church. well, technically i just mouthed the words. i can barely talk. singing is not even an option.

4. lounging around & not feeling guilty about it since all my housework was done on Saturday.

5. fresh clean towels that smell like Bounce dryer sheets.

i'm having flashbacks about that ladybug poem. you're right.. it is morbid. too funny.

Funny, the poem was slightly different where I grew up, and only a little less morbid: "Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home; your house is on fire, your children, alone!"

I remember the lady bug poem, too! I never really knew what the point was, tho.

Nichole: I *still* don't know the point, other than Gram used to say it when she would set a ladybug free! LOL!
