A Perfect Gift

There is nothing more satisfying than peeking into the hen house and finding a beautiful, perfect, pastel colored egg. I am especially thrilled when the egg is still warm. What a perfect little comfort. What a perfect little gift from nature.
Sometimes, if the egg is still warm, I can't resist touching it to my cheek just ever so slightly. Some may think "eww" but the egg is perfectly clean, and I haven't died yet! I am in awe of animals that produce food. If you look to the earth and all it's plants, animals and water, you will find everything you need to sustain your body.
