The Birds Nest and Earth Day
She was persistent. And noisy. And early. Trying to build her nest on my front door wreath. Finally I just took the wreath down, and put it in the garage by our nest collection. I brought one nest inside to show the boys. They were all together, sitting at the table. I held up the nest. And told them, "Just look at this complete nest. The mom bird made this for her babies. She had to get each and very twig. One by one. With her mouth. To make this perfect nest for her babies." They all looked again at the nest. I could tell by their posture and silence they were thinking. About the mom bird. About creatures. About moms. About God.
