You see this little guy? When the Bride and I sat down outside to fill out papers for financial aid for her schooling, we never imagined this little spider was going to remind us something we already knew. I was sitting in my chair when The Bride points out a spider making its way up my pants legs. Since the last season of loss I decided I just didn’t feel the need to smash it. I blew at it till it jumped/flew to the porch floor. Several seconds past since the landing and then right back up my pants leg it came. I took a piece of paper and coaxed it on to the paper and moved it off the porch, about three or four steps, into the yard. After about five minutes back comes this little spider and it starts up my foot. The next relocation project finds the spider moved once again, this time via air mail, back into the yard. Another five minutes pass and here comes this wee little spider back across the porch. This time he climbs up the table and I move it once again via paper to the yard. Not long after it comes back onto the porch just like clock work. This time I move my chair over a foot or so and making sure I do not crush it I head inside and grab my camera. It heads across the porch and up my reclining camp chair and to who knows where. We have good laugh but we have been reminded of something that can get lost in the heat of life: Never give up when things do not go your way and stay the course. A little life lesson from this guy.

I am a 55 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 24 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on. View all posts by The Jagged Man
