a little blessing
This morning, while making my coffee, I glanced out the kitchen window and saw the bird feeders covered in snow ... again. So I shut off the kettle and painfully put my boots on. Painful because I broke my toe last week. I filled my plastic bowl with bird feed and went out the door. It wasn't a second that went by when several chickadees filled the nearby tree and started to chirp and sing. One of these precious little birds instantly flew toward me and softly landed in my bowl of bird feed that was still in my hands. I just looked at it and thought, what a little blessing this is.
