I am not afraid of spiders. Can't understand why people give them such a bad rap. We have one every year that makes a web in the corner of my bay window over my sink in the kitchen. We let it live out it's one year life there and I even kill moths and flies and feed them to the "kitchen spider" . I tell my kids that the kitchen spider brings blessings to our home, so not to hurt it.
We don't have any podisonous spiders around here, so maybe that's why they are so easily accepted
I am most afraid of losing one of my kids.
