April 27 Backyard Blessings
Despite living so close to a major city, our backyard is a sanctuary. It’s not just for us but for all sorts of wildlife – many different birds, chipmunks, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, and oh yes – even an occasional possum. I can sit on the back patio and feel like I’ve escaped to a magical forest, complete with fairy dust (aka pollen).
Today I am thankful for our sanctuary
- .. the canopy of trees that house choirs of birds.
- .. the Blue Jay who has made her nest inside the wall pocket on the rear wall of the house (I hope we find a shared and peaceful equilibrium.)
- .. the magical red leaves of the Japanese Maple.
For what are you thankful?
