A Painted Turtle Taught Me a Lesson

Sometimes the easy path for us makes life harder for others.

Painted turtle walking through grass.

I almost killed a turtle today. Luckily, I saw him crossing our street and swerved.

I hit the brakes and yelled, “Cade! A turtle!” I flipped on the hazards and we exited the SUV.

“Where’s he going Mommy?”
