Eggs In Your Pockets

January 6, 2014
egg in pockets
There is something about the moment of discovering an egg that you forgot in your pocket. Innocently, you reach inside to find a sweet little orb of goodness greeting your fingertips. So many feelings flood in from excitement, happiness, and elation that it didn’t break. They are sweet surprises that I usually discover when I am running the kids to school, volunteering, tending the gardens or even having lunch out with friends. 

Perhaps people think I am crazy to tuck them into my pockets when I am sometime in a hurry.
I think they help me to remember to slow down.
You never know when you might crush one of those forgotten eggs.
I certainly have done that in the past, especially at the worst possible time!
Mostly, the chickens are a part of me. I carry them on my journey when not in my pockets in my heart.

  1. I've lurked for a while and enjoy reading but I had to comment on this one. A couple of weeks ago the hubby and I had to run to Home Depot right after morning chores. As I was walking down an aisle I happened to stick my hand in my coat pocket where I found the egg I had grabbed and instantly forgotten about. We had a good laugh, I stuck it back in my coat pocket and we finished our shopping. Its good to know I'm not the only one who does things like this!
    By way, I'm in Marstons Mills, so not too far from you 🙂

    • Too funny! I am so happy you left a comment today. Yes, they are definitely fun to find. Glad too that it didn't explode in your pocket. So nice to know you are so close by too! Right next door practically 🙂
