Little pieces of my life and my photos.
What a wonderful day for you to be with your mom.As far as the photo, what a cute little guy this is. Isn't it amazing that they can manage to light in between all those thorns!
I plan on taking you advise, Kerri. I'm so glad your Mom is doing better. That little bird is a keeper. I like the photo as a metaphor - even if life is sharp, remain soft.
I agree ... a very meaningful metaphor ... and how protected we are
What a beautiful picture! It is so wonderful to see nature all around.I am so happy for you,that you still have Mom with you.Cherish every moment you can spend together. Blessings,Ruth
This is so beautiful - You really captured a terrific shot
Such a sweet little bird! So glad your mom is feeling better. Indeed we all have to learn to slow down a bit to stop and look at the little things.
Nice photo!I hope that little bird knows what it's doing with those sharp thorns! Youchie!I like Barb's metaphor of staying soft when life is sharp... So glad your Mom is better and you were able to spend time with her.
My first thought was ouch! :)It is amazing how they manage.Glad to hear that your parents are doing well.Good advice Kerri for us all to slow down and what a perfect time to really see the beauty around us.Sunday Blessings!
I'm so glad to know that your mother is doing well. What a relief that must be. Chickadees are such gutsy little critters. THey ain't afraid of no thorns! ;)
Your title made me think about how among the thorns (your mom's illness last year), beauty arises (the new spring and her health). So glad she's doing so well Kerri, and that you all were blessed to have Sunday together.
Great picture Kerri.
That is amazing that he can land among all those thorns!!So happy that your mom is so much better now and that you were able to go for a walk with her. The ice cream was a great bonus. :-)
What an absolutely perfect little bird! Great shot!I'm so happy that your mom is doing well. Spring is a great time for reminders of how precious life really is!
So glad you and your mom can enjoy this spring together. And don't the little birds just make it perfect?
What a sweet little chickadee! And I totally agree -- carpe diem!
What a difference a year can make. So glad for you and for your mom.Yes, how do these little chickadees land on these branches and not get stuck?!
Lovely moment and photo Kerri. Both put a smile on your face. Thank you.
It certainly is a wonder how they can light on something like that seemingly effortlessly. Thanks for sharing about your mother. I bet you both treasured the day together and the ice cream shop. Diane
Stunning! I love this shot...it is amazing they can perch on these things without getting punctured! Glad you were able to get out with your mom. It makes it all the sweeter...
What a beautiful photo! I love little chickadees and love this dof!
Kerri, Your stories always touch my heart. I'm so happy you can share precious times with your folks/Mom. Cherish the moments. Plus...this is one of my favorite pics of yours...the little bird so trustingly perched amidst the thorns. Beautiful, as always. With Love, Cathy
Ohhh...that is SO extremely cute! What an excellent photo! You should earn an award for that!!
Thank-you for your beautiful pictures! You have amazing talent. I hope it's okay that I put a few of them in my blog today, I referenced you at the bottom. They so adequately expressed what I was trying to say. Let me know if you don't want them on there and I'll remove them. You sure have a way of capturing a moment - I wish I could do that!
