Meet My Little Friend

Apparently, I have an ant farm living in the keyboard of my computer. I took my laptop outside a few days ago to enjoy the sunny day. Ants have been keeping me company ever since. Yesterday, one of my little friends crawled out from underneath the letter Y carrying a big crumb.

When I told my husband this, he jokingly expressed to me what this one happy ant was probably yelling to all his ant friends. “Come on guys, there’s a whole pizza down there!”

My hubby is always teasing me about all the crumbs on my laptop keyboard. Yes, I’m a snacker, and I often choose to snack while sitting in front of my computer.

But now I see that my bad habit is actually helping my new friends store food for the winter. I have also discovered ants love to read. This little guy seems to really like reading Marni Arnold’s site Relevant Brokenness. We read yesterday’s article together. Me and my little friend highly recommend adding Marni’s blog to your daily reading. 🙂

    Thank you for the giggle. What a fabulous visual. Eileen and her pet ant reading encouraging words- while snacking. 🙂

    I was thinking the same thing as Heidi. 😉 Way to put a positive spin on what could be an annoying problem. I'm gonna head over and check out Marni's site now. Many blessings!

    Hi Eileen – Like Lisa says, great positive perspective on an annoying event. Maybe those ants were from Proverbs? 🙂

    Thanks guys, I had to work today and I wasn't able to hang out with my little friends today. I wonder what they read while I was working. 😉

    Yes, definitely check out Marni's site. I found it a few months back and often come away with something to think about.
