Daddy Longlegs

A friend sent this to me, and I just had to share.

A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden. • He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was. • Tears formed in his eyes as he thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. • Suddenly she just stopped and stared at the ground. • He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention.

He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating. • 'Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?' she asked. • 'They're mating,' her father replied. • 'What do you call the spider on top?' she asked. • A Daddy Longlegs,' her father answered. • 'So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?' the little girl asked.

• As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he replied, 'No dear. Both of them are Daddy Longlegs.'

• 'The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then lifted her foot and stomped them flat. • 'Well", she said, "that may be OK in California , but we're not having any of that shit in Texas."
