A Lesson from the Spider

8.2.2016

This evening when I arrived home from work, I pulled into the driveway, got out of the car, and headed for the mailbox past our front yard, as I normally do every day when I get home from work.  The first thing I noticed was the beginning of a spiderweb on my angel trumpet plant.  The amazing thing about it, though, was the fact that the web apparently originated in the grapefruit tree, which is well over six, maybe seven feet away from the angel trumpet plant.

If you look carefully at the photo, you can probably spot from left to right the horizontal line of web that is the spider’s launching point.  It’s a really impressive feat, when you think about what it took for that little spider to jump from point A to point B and just start spinning.  Life is like that sometimes.  You see what you want and you go for it, instinctively and with intent.
