How to make a tufted titmouse nest...

Bring your family of titmice to a cute chick relaxing in a lawn chair watching the birdfeeders.  Sneak up behind her and test her hair.  mmmmmm.... soft, long, nice color, smells good, seems to be willing to weave easily.  Let's go for it gang!  Sure hope she visits more often.  Need some power to yank it out though.  Maybe upside down will do it.  Who are those people giggling at us?


Smile today...

"You must learn to forgive yourself as easily as you forgive others. And then take a further step and use all that energy that you used in condemning yourself for improving yourself. After that I really started to get somewhere - because there's only one person you can change and that's yourself. After you have changed yourself, you might be able to inspire others to look for change.  ~Peace Pilgrim~

"Now, please do as she asks. Please forgive yourself completely. And smile today at someone you don't know, yet. Make it a big smile, brighten their day.
Om Shanti. May all know Peace."   ~Swami Sankarananda~

God, I am often so sloppy or lazy at my prayers, or, even worse, my prayers are lovely and pure and the
next sixteen and a half hours are a mess.

I do not pray to become holy,
but simply this: to remember.
To be mindful of your goodness,
to remember that you are here,
to be present in the moment you grant me,
to look around me, to listen...
to remember. Amen.
