  •  cheers to my dear friend/ coworker... (16+ / 0-)

    yesterday at church she left me alone in the nursery to go to the JAM (jesus and me) classroom to rescue 9 ducklings who were separated from their mother.

    they were trapped in a window well outside the window. there was a grate above them- the mother duck couldn't get at them.

    we think when it was raining they must have gotten washed in there somehow.

    another friend boosted my friend up from inside the classroom. my friend caught each one and brought them outside in a basket. she had to put a garbage bag over them to quite them and keep them from getting out.

    to add to the drama, a hawk was circing the whole time.

    my friend put the basket down on the grass and waited. right away the mama duck flew back and took her babies.

    isn't that the sweetest mother's day story ever? after the whole thing was over, everyone realized they really should have gotten it on camera.

      And it came at exactly the right moment for me!

      Don'tcha love it when the Universe gets its ducks in a row...
      with a little help from their friends?
