This morning was a fun morning for Stuart and myself. I thought since St. Louis is having such great temps outside wouldn't it be great to take him to the zoo. I asked him right when he awoke if he would like to go. His comment was "I see elephants?" He loves elephants. Every time we read a book that has a picture of an elephant he always points it out. I cannot turn the page until I acknowledge the elephant. Driving to the zoo Stuart continually said "I see elephant. I see big elephant." I told him yes. Later thinking I hope the elephants are even out. Thankfully they were more than out. They were guarding the newborn elephant carefully. A bobcat (machine not animal) was working in their living quarters. The dad (I am assuming) was pacing, making loud noises, stomping his foot and throwing dirt plus hay on his back. When the baby elephant would move around all the four adult elephants would move with him. They were quite protective. It was great to see them. Stuart was making the elephant noises along with them. He loved it!
Since my last blog about the attributes of God and also the examples of burning the fake out of me I was thinking that I still have a long way to go for Him to get the fake out of me. So my conclusion is that I am going to live a long, long time. God is not finished with me yet. I say that partially jokingly yet hopeful. I am a slow learner.
I have made a resolution of sorts. Never been too good at them in the past. I decided if I can cut out as much sugar as I have I can grow fingernails. You may laugh but I truly think it is all about self control. Lacking in that category. My right hand is looking quite well. I only wish the resolution was made sooner. Tonight I have been invited to a spa pampering party. My nails are not able to have much pampering. I even bought my first nail file last week. (Throw that confetti.) It now resides in my purse like most normal women. I am actually exhibiting some self control.
Odd title of elephants and self control sorry it was all I could think of.
