A Little Light at the Window

If you’ve read any of my previous blogs you might have seen that I wrote about putting a bird feeder in front of my window to help with my nerves. That bird feeder has sprouted into 5 and one brick feeder.  We get the regular blue jays and cardinals but with the change of weather, we get to see unusual birds and stay awed in their colors and beauty.

These last couple of weeks have been busy for us but I still have to work so the birds are the one truly constant enjoyment that I have. As of. this morning, we have a baby red bellied woodpecker, a baby Carolina wren, a baby cardinal and also a baby titmouse. How do I know what these birds are? The woodpecker was easy as we had been watching the male and female for a while and then the bald looking baby showed up. The Cardinals we have year round as we do the titmice, but the Carolina wren we had to look up. These are just the babies that we have and we’ve been watching all kinds of other birds arrive.

I keep my camera beside my keyboard to try and get a picture of the babies but the woodpecker hasn’t figured out how to land on the feeder yet and seems to scare itself. We have one of the baby wren getting fed but not any of the others, they’re just too quick for me.

Simple, I know, but it’s relaxing and also beautiful to watch. The bright red of the male cardinal feeding on the white church feeder that I have, stunning. I’ve introduced my granddaughter to a whole new world, albeit from our window. She loves to watch as they feed and interact and she is my official squirrel police, armed with a water filled squirt gun.

In my world filled with chaos and negativity, there is still a bit of love and light shown to me each day that I look out my window at these amazing creatures. Sometimes, I feel as though they are looking back through the window at me and I truly hope that’s the case.

I like to think I'm a normal everyday woman but my mind tells me otherwise. I fight my battles and post them here. I don't tell my family and real life friends that I write here. This is my own little way of having "someone" to talk to. My own little therapy session if you will. I welcome comments and opinions but I have enough negativity to last a lifetime already . My world is changing and now more than ever I need support and encouragement but I'm still too afraid to let anyone know that it's me writing here.
