Life as a turtle, now that's an interesting concept. I truly believe that God has a sense of humor.
My husband knows that sometimes, I just don't want to...You know, I'm sure you have days like that. He'll say "humor me," and being the type of person I am, I normally give in.
If there were something I could relate to in creation, it would be the turtle. Slow...turtle speed, (everything is so fast today). Specifically, decisions which will affect the lives of all Americans.
Some days, I just want to take my time and bathe in the surroundings. You know, pampering, and indulgence. When someone comes around and "I don't want too," entertain, (be able to stick my head in and "hide" just like the turtle. Oh Bother! Seems someone always wants something.
You know,....I guess you have to be, (pardon the pun), thick skinned in this world. (Isn't there always some sort of crisis)?Just follow the news lately.
Maybe there is something to being a turtle, they live long, simple lives, don't they? They are contained in a protective shell, no mortgage to pay. They don't have to fuss with their hair, nails and do all the other things that make us society "acceptable". My friend said one day, that her dog has a better life than she does. Now that's sad, (but true)!
So, what don't I feel like doing today? Just about everything.
I forced myself to scrub the bathroom, make the bed, clean-up the kitchen sink and now, to do my exercise. Guess I just will have to talk myself into it, again. What's for Dinner?
Wonder if turtles could talk, what they would say? "I'd like to get out of this shell and live a little bit." Who said that? Now that's funny!
