Praying Mantis

Found a 'praying mantis' near my front door on Halloween night. Haven't seen one of those in several years!! Had to look it up to see what it means when you see a praying mantis. "The mantis comes to us when we need peace, quiet and calm in our lives. Usually the mantis makes an appearance when we've flooded our lives with so much business, activity, or chaos that we can no longer hear the still small voice within us because of the external din we've created. After observing this creature for any length of time you can see why the symbolism of the praying mantis deals with stillness and patience. The mantis takes her time, and lives her life at her own silent pace."

Funny that you should post this.......back during the summer when I was going through chemo treatments, I found one on our deck. Maybe she's trying to tell us something!

Yes, that's what I'm thinkin'! :o) I haven't seen one in a very very longtime, it was so unusual and... for it to be right near my front door.
