    Okay here goes. About a week or so ago I was going somewhere with Izabella and while driving down a hill I saw something hop out in to the road. I figured I was going to miss the frog and not run it over but low and behold I did not miss it :( This is the first animal I have ever hit and I was horrified. Well this morning when Izabella and I got in to the car to start off to daycare and then me to work I found something sitting on my car console....bad karma????
    I have no idea how it got in the car either..hubby did not put it in there and neither did Izabella. Needless to say Izabella took the frog and made him a habitat at daycare..but it kind of spooked me out..have never had a frog in my car...
    Eeery or not?
    Hugs

    I cleaned the hair off of him that was stuck too.

    It's not eeery, stuff just happens. Apparently, it was that little frog's time who ran in front of your car. I believe the little frog in your car was just a coincidence.

    (that said, it does make a great story!)

    Eerie only because you cared. Better to run over a frog than swerv and go out of control and kill your child in a car accident.

    I think it was a frog who needed help and knew you would feel a responsibility toward him given your earlier experience. God works in mysterious ways.

    now i read this, so who knows, the frog held and important role in early myth the frog symbolized resurrection and a higher stage of spiritual awakening, other eurpopean folklore states that it is good luck to have a frog show up in your home and if heard outdoors it signified coming rain.

    i just think it is cool, and a beautiful frog too, when i lived on the outer banks for north carolina, and you heard the frogs singing, the old timers would say "the frogs are singing for rain.

    it reminds of nature, you and your daughter are safe, and froggy has a new home, "has he gone a courting", it is an old childrens rhyme i believe. and then think of "wind in the willows"? was there not a frog in that also, and we also remember prince charming (and where is he now in my life/hiding in the garden?lol)

    i had a gecko ride on my windsheild on the toll road, 95 miles per hours for heavens knows how long before i could pull over and get him off, tossed him in the bushes, and i think he just did not like his neighborhood and was looking for new digs, he was lucky and so was i, i found him a new home, and most especially i did not wreck the car looking at him and being worried.

    that is a wee bit eery... so nice though that your daughter is going to care for the one you found and that you had a chance to "save"... I've heard it said that intention is the key to good karma... I would guess that you're doing well, teaching your daughter, giving her school friends a new acquaintance to care for, etc. ... interesting!

    I would be a bit freaked out too. I guess you can think of it as a second chance.

    When you opened your car door, the frog hopped in. I don't believe in coincidence Everything happens for a reason, may be a small reason but there is always a reason. Cause and effect is the root of all things that happen.

    Think I would have given him a great big kiss to see if it was Prince Charming. I like frogs.

    Unless you are near Chicago... we have been having a fly problem...

    And that is creepy about the frog! He probably hopped in when the car door was opened and no one noticed him.
