Early morning blessing

On this day 2 years ago.

It was 5:55 a.m. and except for the streetlights and the yard light it was still dark outside. I heard the beautiful song of the little wren that sits at my window most mornings around 7:30 a.m. and sings for me.

Carolina wren enjoying sunshine after several days of rain.

Those little wrens sing off and on throughout the day at my place, but I have not heard one that early since that day.

We had had rain for several days and that was the first day without rain for a few hours, more rain was coming. That was a special blessing to hear that beautiful song before dawn.

So many little things can make a difference to us just at the right time. We can make a difference in someone’s life by doing something that seems small to some but would be a big blessing to others.

We should never stop being respectful and kind to others and being thankful for the beauty that surrounds us in nature.

Swingin’ or Rockin’

It doesn’t really matter which I end up in, I love them both.

Porch swing or a swing in the yard. Where the swing is doesn’t matter. If I am at a park with swings I can’t resist swinging. I could swing for hours just listening to the birds sing and enjoying the sounds of nature.

Some of my fondest memories of me with my grandfather is swinging in a porch swing with him, watching and listening to the birds.

When it is not swinging kind of weather, I really enjoy rocking in a rocking chair. I loved rocking my babies and grand-babies when they were young enough to rock.

Life to me would be incomplete without a swing and rocking chair. Are you a swinger or a rocker or both?

If you have not heard the song Patio Prunings mentioned and I thought of when I posted this you can hear it below if you wish to.
