Small Miracle

This morning my two Gray Squirrels finally ventured out of their nest. First, two noses appeared, sporting two pairs of whiskers. Then, two or three minutes later, two sets of bright eyes, two sets of ears. Another several minutes and they both emerged entirely from their hanging bag and began exploring their cage.

One of them even munched on an apple core. Then she discovered a tiny bowl of warm formula I had just placed there, and began sipping it. Unfortunately, that's when Demetrios sneezed. That sent both squirrels diving back into their bag.

Never mind; what one learns, the other will soon pick up! They aren't going to starve themselves, after all. They just needed a couple more days. They are going to make it, going to be just fine, and come April, I'll release these late bloomers.

Thank You, God!
