Daily Reminder # 431

This isn't a good picture, but it makes me laugh every
time I look at it, so I'm hoping it will do the same for you

Just gratitude again today and pictures of wet birds. It rained all day yesterday. I tossed my bird seed a little closer to the door thinking I was doing the birds a kindness so they could come out of the rain. They did but it made them extra skittish. They are very aware of my presence and I know they wish I would go away. Lucky for me the promise of food beats the fear of the giant blob.

This little bird looked so sick and miserable that I kind of hesitate to share
his picture. I was so troubled by him that I actually put my camera down
and started sending some reiki his way. As soon as I started he moved
slightly away from the food and got very still, just seeming to soak it in.  He
looks pretty sick, but I'm hoping that even if I didn't save him, maybe I
gave him a few moments of comfort and a better chance.

These guys are always in motion and they move so
fast. I tried very hard to catch these parent child moments
without much success... these are the closest I could get.

Another parent/child moment...

Some things I'm grateful for are: (Items in red a re pre-gratitude, an effort to inspire in the Creative Forces of the Universe an intense desire to respond to my consistent gratitude with more and more and more to be grateful for... and soon, please, Creative Forces. I'm not getting any younger.)
