Chickens are our friends....right?

Not too far from our house is a nursery which hosts a farmer's market each week as well as has a small petting zoo and playground for the kids. We went out there one evening to explore and get some fresh produce. The girls had fun running around. Bekah wasn't sure about the petting zoo but Lizzie - our fearless child - seemed to bond with one of the chickens. I'm not so sure what kind it is but the chicken just hopped right out of the cage and followed Lizzie around - even to the play ground. Not sure if it was hoping for food or just has a fondness for little ones. :)  Lizzie thought it all quite amusing and danced around the chick.

While we were there I had taken some cash out of my purse and put it in my pocket so I could buy some yummies at the farmer's market. After walking around and deciding what we wanted I went to get the cash out it was gone!  I checked every pocket and retraced our steps multiple times looking for it. It was a windy day and other people around so I figured it had either blown into the waist-high weeds around the sides. I was bummed thinking I would have to go home empty-handed. We went and played in the playground and played with the chicken some more when I noticed something on the ground. It was three dollars folded up. It wasn't my money and there was no one else around so I was pretty excited that I would be able to get some fresh green peppers since ours were not yet ready in our garden. I went back out front and bought the peppers and a fresh lemon and headed back to the car. As I got in I looked into my purse and there was my money sitting right on top! Not sure how that happened but it was a great reminder that God provides!  PTL!
