A First For Us

So I took my four sandal clad kids to Daily Mass this morning. I ran into a long, green and yellow SNAKE on the church side walk. The snake flecked it's forked tongue at us for several seconds and then finally slunk away into a nearby stone wall.

I've never seen a wild snake's head up that close. I've never seen something like that coming out of a City parking lot.

I didn't say anything at all. Yet my kids were filled with various opinions about our encounter. My favorite was from my six year old son who said "They need to get that Mommy Mary statue fixed at our Church pronto! Snakes don't scare kids like that when she's around."
