I only have a few minutes right now, since my hubby will be home anytime (YEAH!!!!), and we will be having a couple families over to see some dear friends off to their new home, far far away… sniff.. sniff..
Anyhow, yesterday, as the kids and I were scrubbing the deck, I looked up at the birds nest that was built on one of our entryway columns during the Spring.
Isn’t that such a cute place for a nest?
I have yet to see any birds flying to or from the nest, and started wondering if it had been abandoned.
I have never been much of an “outdoors” person, so I know very little about this sort of thing, which I plan to remedy this coming year with the help of a few great books.
So, I grabbed a chair and climbed up to see if there were any eggs inside the nest.
I couldn’t quite get that high so I attempted lifting up my camera to see if that would help.
Not quite… After many tries, I finally got this shot:
It was the best I could get, but sure enough there are 3-4 eggs in there… Maybe more?
Should these have hatched yet? The momma bird wouldn’t have abandoned the nest, and leave behind her eggs, would she have?
Anyhow, I just thought one of you out there reading this might be able to help us out. Anyone?
While I am on the subject of birds… I just love this picture that my hubby took while we were back in Nebraska. Isn’t it just too cute?
Well, I have to get off the computer and back to work. See you all soon!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
