Okay, well I didn’t exactly have triplets. But a few weeks ago, when I went outside on my deck, a bird flew out from a wall decoration. It scared the crap out of me! I looked over at the wall decoration, and everything appeared to be normal.
Upon further inspection, I noticed this. Looks strangely like bird poop and feathers to me.
In order to get a closer look, I pulled over one of my patio chairs and stood on it. I leaned in slowly just in case something else was going to jump out at me. Instead, I found this:
Three perfect little eggs. A couple of days later, I decided to check back again. This time, here’s what I discovered.
These three little babies were sleeping peacefully, but when they heard me approaching, they thought I was their mama.
Sorry, babies, I don’t have any food! Look how precious they are with their little mouths open. They didn’t even have their eyes open yet. I decided to try not to disturb them for a few days, but my curiosity was killing me after about a week. Let me tell you, these birdies grow up FAST!
The last time I went to check on them, all the birdies flew out of the nest, and now it’s empty. My sad little wall decoration is covered in bird poop, so before the summer is over, I plan to throw away those tired faux flowers, give the whole thing a good scrub, and get it all fixed up with some pretty new decorations.
It’s amazing to me how awesome Mother Nature is. There is constant rebirth, growth, and change. These little birdies reminded me that life is always evolving…these little birdies hatched from tiny little eggs, became helpless and vulnerable babies, and now they’re flying all by themselves. I’m also learning to fly. I’m setting my sights on some new goals, challenging myself in ways that scare me, and taking leaps of faith. I’m glad you’re on this journey with me.
