The Nest, again.

My appologies to anyone who has been checking in with my blog for awhile with no positive results, but I've had a pretty rough little while. I may post on that tomorrow, but it's sort of a sensitive subject for me right now, so I may not post on why I've been absent. Just know that I love you all and I am again committing to posting regularly.

Julie Pippert's Hump Day Hmm topic this week is Earth Day and taking care of our world. To me, taking care of our world has a lot to do with celebrating life and being grateful to God that he has made life possible for all of us. We need to try to help each other out by working to take care of the world a little bit at a time.

Many people, when they find a bird trying to build a nest in their house, will evict the bird ASAP, so it's not in the way. We, however, have been so excited about it and have anxiously watched it day by day.

Today, we had a miracle at our house. Some of the baby birds are hatched! They are so CUTE... They open and close their little mouths. I tried to take a picture of them with their mouths open, but I couldn't. But I got one that shows the egg opened and you can see one of the birds. It looks just like a big fur ball.

I can't wait until they start to fly. It will be so neat! Here's the picture of the nest.

Glad to see you back! I hope everything has settled down and you are ok.

I love the saga of the birds. I'm glad to see that they are hatching and developing normally. Keep us posted.

I'm happy to have you back. I miss you when you don't post for a while. I hope everything is going alright for you, and I totally understand not wanting to put things out there for anyone to read. However, I am also a great listener if you ever need a "shoulder" to lean on.:) Know I love you. I'm excited about the birds too. Thanks for allowing us all the opportunity to experience this wonderful thing along with you.
Love you!

I was wondering where you had been. It's good to have you back and I hope everything is o.k. I have really enjoyed reading about the birds and hope that you will continue to update everyone as well as send pictures.

Welcome back...I had wondered, but also know you have small children and this is a busy time of year. We're hear to listen if you want to talk.

This is a beautiful post. I think when you said it's abut appreciating this gift you are spot on.

We also had birds nest by our living room window. We're all so excited. We all watch and gaze and discuss. It's probably the biggest and most discussed family thing right now.

Thanks to all who missed me. I am trying to get up the courage to post on recent happenings, but more things keep coming up. Maybe once all of the feelings have died down, I will post on what's going on. I'm glad people like the birds.
