Something drew me toward the sheer drape hanging in my closet this morning. For some reason I went into the back corner of the closet where there is a window that is almost entirely covered by a large wardrobe to move the sheer and glance out the window. Then I noticed that there was a fold in the drape that was stuck together for some reason. As I pulled it apart there was a crackly noise that sounded like a thin sticky paper which was stuck together by gum or something. When I examined the material up close I discovered that there was a spider inside moving around, and she had a yellow sack of eggs in the cocoon. Even though I had pulled apart the drape where it had stuck together, there wasn't a clear opening in the little cocoon. It was a very strong protective place. It made me wonder, how long would the spider stay there in its little space. How long does it take for the egg to hatch? Does the spider go without food during this time? So many questions.
There was no other reason for me to look at the drape than just to notice this little wonder today. I love these little discoveries, and I am grateful for the wonder of the LIFE surrounding me. And you too... The joy of life is there for us all to appreciate as we are present in the NOW.
