Praying Mantis *

As a child Kaylan frequently had praying mantises with her. Whenever they show up I feel as if she's nearby.

Me to my online grief group

Last night when we got to our Heartbeat meeting there was a beautiful little praying mantis riding on the tonneau cover behind my seat. I unthinkingly said "Hi!" when I saw it and then started crying. Then of course Darrell started crying. And THEN an hour and a half later when we came out of the meeting it was STILL there! I coaxed it onto a poster and pot it on a plant, but it decidedly did not want to leave our truck. Sigh...
