God knew what He was doing
when He sent a gentle breeze
and brought a lovely butterfly
to set my heart at ease.
The happiness of your friendship
and the gentleness of your words
have touched my life in special ways
and now I feel assured.
Thank you for your loyalty
and for reading everyday.
I only hope you find things
to make a happy day.

Favorite Things Saturday....My Favorite Bird House
Here is a picture of my favorite bird house. It has no way of cleaning it...so things are just left there from year to year. If you look closely there is a wren hanging on to the doorway. The birdhouse is on a lower branch of the tree, but it doesn't seem to matter to these little birds.I can sit under it and they come and go...looking at me as if I'm a lawn ornament. As for cleaning the house....the wrens simply get to work and take the old nesting material out...one by one...taking a very long time. They are such persistent birds...spending hours on their nest. Last year they made a pile on the ground under the house and then turned around and put all the debris back in the house. After the eggs are laid...they start their chattering and scolding every time I come near. They flit around and try to fake me out as to where their nest is. I love this little aggressive bird...probably one of my very favorites. I can't wait until next month when they return.
