Yesterday I awoke to the most beautiful sun beaming through my windows.
Any of my doubts about the day vanished,
My dogs were anxious to get outside,
As I was about to open the door,
I was stopped by the most beautiful sound of happy birds.
I grabbed the muzzles for the dogs,
opened the door, they were gone in a flash,
There had to be about 50 chickadees,
I knew if I moved to get the camera,
they would mostly likely fly away.
I just stood watching and listening,
They were playing with one another,
very curious about me,
moving their little heads from side to side.
I love the sound of chickadees.
I stood with the backdoor open.
the freshness of the morning was beautiful,
I sighed, content in my peace.
loving this moment, wanting it to last longer,
thinking of the many moments I had sat watching
the chickadees with my Dad.
This was the most I had in my yard.
I was so blessed to have ten minutes of their day,
a calming effect, their happiness opening my heart to their true beauty.
Suddenly my Jack Russel Sparky came running
towards me, still with muzzle on,
and proceeded to jump about seven feet high straight in the air,
With that the chickadees were gone.
I had enjoyed every moment.
and it set the mood
for the day!
there is beauty all around us,
we just have to have our eyes and hearts open.
Have a fabulous weekend.The picture
