Visit with Grand kids

The kids had a great time at the park. It was so nice to see them again.

Robin's Nest

I have found that if I go for a walk out behind our place, it is like a bird sanctuary! I have taken a lot of birdy pics that I will share. Today I found this robin's nest in a little tree by the path. I thought it would go with my last post.
I have been off work this past week with a shoulder injury. I feel really bad for the girls at work but it had got to the point where I was in agony all day and all night with it. I am going to physio now which is very painful but I am slowly regaining ROM with it. T3s are my best friend right now. At least my legs work, so I try to get out for a walk a couple of times a day and do some of my stretching exercises along the way.

Baby Robin came to visit

This sweet little robin landed on our porch and after a while it took a brave flight into the tree from whence it came. It clung to a stem of a leaf but the wind was blowing and it fluttered around. It ended up coming to rest on this fence post under the tree and the mommy robin came and fed it after a while. Eventually it made it to a stronger branch in the tree and the mother bird continued to watch over it and feed it after what was probably it's first flight. It keeps me in awe at how wide spread the instincts of motherhood spread throughout nature. Motherhood is indeed an awesome thing.

Happy Mother's Day!!

This card was made for the sweetest, kindest, most generous, loving and wonderful Mom in the whole world....My Mom. I actually spent hours making this card, thinking of her all the time and all the wonderful things she has done for our family. She has been a wonderful example to all of us. I am so thankful for her in my life.
