Last week a strange thing happened. I got home from work and saw a dove sitting on my truck (I had driven my husband's truck that day) I thought it was a little strange, because this dove wasn't just sitting on the truck...she wasn't budging. I walked right by her and...nothing. She didn't fly away she just looked at me with her creepy beady black eyes.
I grabbed my cell phone and snapped this pic.
As soon as I snapped the pic, she was startled and flew away which revealed...to my surprise....this:
ON MY TRUCK!!!! Ok - Here is a severly emotional woman who already feels lost and hopeless and is trying to recover from another pregnancy loss - now she is faced with the fact that she will eventually have to drive this truck and would therefore be the cause of immintent death of the un-hatched little dove inside the egg.
To make matters even worse...the next morning I checked on my little dove family surprised to find this:
She laid another egg!!!! Now I am really freaking out and can not in any way disturb these eggs. I am just going to have to suck it up and drive my husband's truck for the next month while the mom incubates, hatches and raises these little baby doves. My husband of course is NOT THRILLED and thinks I am a little loony - ok a lot loony.
Yes, I am a freak of nature but seriously....how many times have you heard of this happening?
Is there some coded message behind this?
