I love little coincidences that occur in everyday life. Two have occurred for me just this last week. I began reading a book that is based on a story surrounding a circus. So for the past week I have noticed many circus related comments and also, my own children chose to watch Dumbo the day I finished the book. How random?
Then, on Tuesday night, I read my children a Little Critter Book (love them!) about Little Critter’s school project which happened to be all about Caterpillars. We read how they eat, grow, and change into butterflies. Well, on Wednesday, around lunchtime, my brother-in-law Steven who was visiting stops by with a giant glass jar complete with milkweek and a caterpillar.
He tells us that he used to collect caterpillars as a child and watch them change into a chrysallis and then into a butterfly. By Thursday morning the caterpillar was in a “J” position. By lunchtime, it had built its chrysallis and we are all watching the transformation in live action form! The kids are delighted and squeeled when they watched the caterpillar creates its chrysallis. It has a beautiful gold rim and Steven says that’s where the chrysallis will open and the butterfly comes out. I love little coincidences and this one has been a royal treat!
