This little Tufted Titmouse looks like he is on High Alert. They stretch themselves to look taller when another bird is around - or at least that is how it seems to me. I've seen chickadees do this too. There is never a dull moment watching these sweet little birds! Available - HERE
As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful.
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.
