The Wonder Of It All...Endings & Beginnings
So after several weeks of carefully watching,
patiently waiting, consulting with birding

Such a gut-wrenching experience, I shed

heart felt as if it would break into a
The eggs are breathtaking, honestly more
beautiful than any gemstone. However,
I would much rather have had these miracles
as part of the world, instead of in a state
of eternal repose.

gift.... a mama Robin busy, busy building
a cozy abode in perfect view from our
dining room windows. The nest is woven
with more colorful yarn bits and even a
ribbon I had tied around a garden statue.
So with one ending comes another beginning!
