Northern Mockingbird



"You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance."  ~Khalil Gibran

This is a small Oak tree that appeared to be dead.  However in the past couple or so weeks it has developed buds which you can see in the photo.  The Mockingbird seems to enjoy its perch here because I've seen it sitting in this tree before and often.

This post would have been up sooner but I heard a terrible noise around 10am and realized it was my Dad.  He had fallen in his bedroom.  My sister and I tried to get him up but we weren't able to.  No neighbors around to help so I called 911.  The EMT's came, picked him up and checked him out.  He's okay!  

Until next time happy blogging.

    1. Thank you Gail. I really thought the tree was dead but so happy to see it budding out. Yes, it scared my sister and I very badly. So happy he didn't get hurt. He's fallen quite a few times over the past year. Hopefully there'll be no more falls. Have a wonderful day.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad's fall; thankfully, he is okay. Praises for that.
    You are a great daughter, Cindy.
    Your mockingbird seems more than content on his oak tree perch. I love his fluffiness. Beautiful photo, my friend.
    I hope that you have a peaceful and happy weekend.
    Give your Dad an extra hug from me.
    Love,
    Jackie

    1. Thank you so much Jackie. He's okay and I'm so grateful he didn't get hurt. Hospice will be coming in to help with bathing etc., just waiting on the doctors office to set it up. I guess they do things like that now.
      Very fluffy and content to sit there. I think he likes the view.

      Have a wonderful weekend and a happy Easter.

      Love and hugs,
      Cindy
