Mama Turtle

Wrapped in an age-softened, threadbare quilt made from the scraps taken from my grandma’s

Sewing basket, the cat and I daydream while rain drums on the lake. In the yard, about

Fifty feet from the house, a mother turtle works to lay her eggs, covering to protect them

From predators and well-intentioned humans. I mark the place in my mind, to better

Advocate for my reptile friend once her work is done. Mamas have to stick together.

On my husband’s birthday we got to release some of those baby turtles. We saw a baby sunning on a log in the lake by our house (in MI) just yesterday. I love turtles! If you like you can read a post I did a while back about a baby turtle experience I had:
