What was Needed


On my way into the office this morning I noticed a turtle had waddled onto a busy road but hadn’t quite made it to the other side. I knew I had to do something so I stopped, got out of my truck and started to pick it up and carry it to a safer place. As I reached for it, the turtle decided it didn’t like the looks of me and retreated hurriedly into its shell. I didn’t take it personally, however, I knew what I needed to do and moved it from its dangerous location to a nice grassy spot off the road.


As I drove away I thought about my new friend and reflected on times in my life when people have rescued me from dangerous and disastrous places. I wasn’t always appreciative but I’m thankful this didn’t dissuade them from doing what needed to be done.

  1. Glad you could rescue him. Yes, most of us have been rescued by someone in our lives at one time or another.
