Chickens Eggs Stories from Our Nest

Eggs In Your Pockets

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.
