A Morning Surprise

This morning began as they often do here.......planning my activities for the day....running an errand, working on a special quilt, etc.  Typical.  Until I went to the mailbox.  You know, sometimes things happen that just make you wonder......and smile.  And, be grateful.  It happened this morning.  I went out to the mailbox, expecting the usual bills and junk mail....but along with the mail found this.  A beautiful bird's nest!  Put there, I expect by a friend.  Who?  I have no idea, but I am grateful to have such a kind and thoughtful friend.  THANK YOU, Special Friend!!! 

"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter...to be thrilled by the stars at night; TO BE ELATED OVER A BIRD'S NEST, or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of a simple life."
John Burroughs

"The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship." 
William Blake

Yes, I was rewarded this morning with a beautiful nest, by a beautiful friend.
 I am grateful for the friendship and also for the BIRD.

until next time

Pat, so glad to see your blogs, thx. I know you said it’s sometimes hard to find things to blog about, but you always help me to stop and look at the small things. I thank you. 😘 💕

This is such a lovely gesture in more ways than putting a smile on your face. Someone wants to give you a lift. Someone honors the effort of that little bird making a comfy home for her family and gift it to someone who would appreciate and keep it. The Universe rewards us all in one way or another.
xx, Carol
