What If Everything Turns Out All Right After All

See that boy, the one with the shining eyes?

He's smiling because he has his whole family, his grown-up friends Nick and Jess, his grandparent neighbors Mark and Meryl and those eggs are hatching. All fifty to two hundred of them. His dad woke up to find them, and then climbed the stairs to find him. "Call everyone!" he told his mother, and so she did.

No praying mantis ate another in the grand exodus from the egg case. Not a single one (that we can determine) died in the passage. All the horrible things that could have happened never did, and for all our flaws, all our broken, cracked places, we are all together.

Everyone.

I am so glad. This reminds me that as parents, we prepare our kids for the bad things that might happen and we sometimes forget to prepare them for the miraculous things that might happen too.

You have such a gift for seeing the lessons and metaphors in life...

So glad that everything turned out so perfectly for Carter!

Super duper yeah for Carter and for your entire family. Thanks for letting us know that, indeed, sometimes everything turns out right after all. What a fantastic reminder.
