Thankful Thursday: Spiders Can't Fly!

Today for Thankful Thursday I am thankful that...
Spiders Can't Fly
Spiders Don't Fly

Last night, I was in the bathroom getting ready for bed and a HUGE relatively large spider crawled across the bottom of the towel hanging on the doorknob. EEEKK!!! I screamed. Pearson came running in bathroom and I told him what happened and that it was now behind the towel and showed him with my hand how big it was. He went to get a cup while I watched for it to come out from behind the towel. When he came back and moved the towel he said "Oh, it is not as big as you said." He trapped it, then got a shoe and killed it. I did not want to go back into the bathroom and I couldn't go to sleep. Let me tell you, I have killed plenty of spiders in my life. Some have even been as big as this one. But I think what freaked me out about this one is that it was in the bathroom, as far away from all doors and windows as possible. Where did it come from? Are there more? It was by the door to our closet. (You can walk through the closet from our bedroom to the bathroom). Are there more in the closet? Am I never going to be able to wear anything that comes out of that closet ever again? Probably. Does this mean our apartment is messy and inviting to spiders? Ugh.
[We decided that this weekend we are going to go through the closet, take everything out and clean it out]

Anyway, later Pearson said, "Hey, you know, at least spiders don't have wings." Oh my goodness! Yes. Thank you, God, for not giving spiders wings! I am being completely serious. I said a prayer thanking Him for this.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. I am also thankful for Pearson and his spider catching/killing abilities.
