Happy Mother's Day! Today my family was able to catch a glimpse of the baby cardinals that had hatched, I would guess, two days ago. Mama cardinal has been sitting very tight, due to the cold weather, but today is beautiful and she, as well as her mate, have been busy bringing black insects of some sort to the chicks.
What we really don't understand are all the walkers and runners with earbuds in their ears. I could tell when we said hello and got no response that all sound was being totally blocked out. So sad, they are missing all the music of nature that God has orchestrated so wonderfully.
I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Mother's Day. Jesse made me my favorite dinner - grilled chicken, onions, bell peppers served in a tortilla wrap with black beans, fresh cut tomatoes, cheese and sour cream. I'd say it doesn't get any better than that, but he baked me an angel food cake today as well! Yeppers - he is a definite keeper. Praise the Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful husband and family!
I want to leave you with these wise words my friend Steve posted on facebook today:
Real Mothers know their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers know a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade but marked by the progression of Mama to Mommy to Mom to Mother.
I will have to find a way to fit those words into a layout!
