When the Red, Red Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along…
Last week my blogging friend @ MerrilyMaryLee's posted a link to this video and after viewing it about a dozen times, I decided that I just had to share it with you in honor of Mother's Day! Like she said in her post, "You're in for a treat!"

So, did you watch the whole thing? No? Whattamean, no? Click that play button!
I can't tell you how much I love this video; this momma bird just reminds me of what all of us have gone through as mothers ourselves. We built our nests, we "hatched" our young, we nurtured them come rain or shine, we kept them from harm, we raised them to be fine upstanding citizens, and then one day we turned around and they were gone and they just left us standing there (luckily without a worm in our beaks). They flew the nest, they went out into the big world and built their own nests.
Now I know some of you still have your fledglings at home and haven't experienced this emptynest syndrome yet. For you I say, enjoy every minute…well, at least cherish every moment — the good and the not so good. One day you'll be like the rest of us — sharing those memories with your adult children. You'll laugh over the antics that at one time drove you crazy and shed
a few more than a few happy tears over their accomplishments.
The other thing you'll be doing for sure is waiting for that phone to ring on a day like this and hearing those four little words…
I love you mom…
To all of you, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day, today and everyday.
To my kids, thank you for being my little birdies, I love you both so much!
To my mom, I miss you so much, thanks for being my mom!
|In loving memory|
