Perched atop the arborvitae, one might think she was just resting from a day of soaring through the skies.
With a bit of keen observation, it becomes clear that much more was going on than a mere rest.
In recent weeks she wove a cozy little nest.
A safe spot to lay her pretty blue eggs.
Last week her little family entered the world.
No doubt happy to be cuddled up together as they nap and become accustomed to life outside of that little blue egg.
Mama spends her days collecting food for her little family.
Flying back and forth throughout the day.
It's so cute to walk near their little home and hear them
chirping away in there.
Mama has chosen the ideal place to perch while keeping watch over her babies.
It's a straight shot to their little home tweet home.
While watching this little bluebird family my thoughts went to all of the mamas out there who quietly go about the business of caring for their children.
It can be a thankless job at times, yet a job filled with precious moments and rich rewards.
I hope that you are reaping some of those rewards today.
