I was sitting in the car with the window open when I felt something fall down my blouse.  It was a lady bug.  Her legs were tight up against her body and she wasn't moving.  I sat there holding her and looking at her for about 4 minutes then she suddenly got up.  She wandered around on my hand and shirt, but she seemed a bit out of it.  I know they eat aphids, but I gave her a crumb of cookie.  She sat there with her mouth attached to it for the longest time.  I couldn't tell if she was eating or not.  After about 15 minutes she seemed steady on her feet.  I put her and her crumb on a leaf and drove away.

She needed a safe place and I just happened to be there at the right time.  There has to be a word for that, but right now I am drawing a blank.

That is so sweet. I like that you did resuscitation by cookie.

I love that. I bet we could all use resuscitation by cookie every now and again.
