Family Photo Friday

You may need to look a bit closer than usual, but Gracie and Bessie really are in this photo. Well, not all of them, just their feathers!

This bird nest, perhaps a robin’s nest, was on the ground after a recent day of strong wind. When I picked it up and examined it, I was surprised to see soft feathers from Gracie and Bessie woven into the nest.

With no rooster around, they would never be using their own warm downy feathers to protect and comfort baby chicks. Yet they were still able to help another bird’s family.

Giving. It’s just what they do, including feathers for wild birds to use when they are building their nests.

Do any of us really know how far the gifts we give may travel or whose lives will be touched?

  1. “Do any of us really know how far the gifts we give may travel or whose lives will be touched?”……….such beautiful and powerful truth! Things that we no longer need can be an added blessing to others!

    1. Thank you, Wendi. I try to remember that when I’m giving things away to thrift stores or our homeless shelter. The item that I don’t need any longer could be just what someone else needs to make their life easier and more enjoyable.

    1. By the way, I think you may have fallen off of my “follow” list. I see that I am following you in one place on WordPress but not in another. Very confusing! Hopefully I’ve corrected it.
