One rainy day, she looked outside her window and saw a new visitor who caught her attention.

The Arrival Of A New Friend

Instead of keeping her friend all to herself, Chrissy grabbed her phone and headed out in the rain. She sat down right on the wet deck and started filming her newest discovery. It was none other than a pretty yellow snail, making his way across her deck.

Perennial Passion

She named her new friend Slug and cheered him on as he made his way across her phone screen.

Sharing Patience With The World

Chrissy took it upon herself to ensure Slug’s safety, so she watched over the little guy until he was safe across the deck. Three million onlookers viewed her videos and took an interest in Slug, the snail.


The world doesn’t always move fast. Sometimes it moves slowly, and you have to slow down right along with it and appreciate the little things.
