Today I touched a spider..

Friday, June 14, 2013

..and I did not panic! Just slightly cringe. I was able to gently brush it off my screaming friend. (The screaming frightened me more than the spider, I must admit.)

Earlier this morning I was just barely holding it together during my visit to the dentist. I was fighting the tears, and finding it hard to feel my face or move my feet. I was feeling fragile and disconnected.

So, I am thankful for the spider and my screaming friend. To be able to be there for her, and to help her, was a great blessing this particular day.

I felt brave again, removing the spider. It felt good.

    Aww, thank you all for the nice comments! This weekend I have been in contact with several spiders, both living and dead, while cleaning the cottage. I think I can safely say i do not fear spiders much anymore..

    You are braver and stronger than you give yourself credit for.

    um. You win. Seriously. My phobia of spiders runs so deep that video game spiders cause issues (there is a long, sordid story there if you ever want to hear it). I am the most phobic of all the people in my house (5) and they all protect me :D

    "You saved your friend's life!" Whenever there is a spider lurking nearby inside my home, I call my husband or sons to kill it! When the deed is done, I say, "You saved my live!". Spiders scare me too! (and I know these spiders do not kill
