Today Lexi and I found a baby squirrel behind our planter.  We didn't know if it was hurt, scared, or a little bit of both.  He hung around for a few hours.  While Lexi and I enjoyed the weather outside, Lexi gave the "little fellow" as she called him, water, nuts, a stuffed animal, a book, and a bed (a Kleenex on her very favorite rock from the yard).  She told me he lost his parents and he wanted to come to our house because he thought we were nice.  Ahh, I just wish I could bottle up the innocence.  I wish the world could be this peaceful, genuine, positive, caring, and sweet.  I wish we could all see the beauty of the world like children do through their eyes.  I. Wish.
