Have you ever felt like you're at a crossroads in your life, only you kinda stay at that spot-not really knowing which way to go? I can't help but remember the Tom Hanks movie "Castaway," in the last shot. He's at that crossroad, remembering his past (which was pretty wild, really!), and maybe thinking, "What tie do I have that draws me to go east, west...?" Of course, he picked the only one that existed, the girl he met while delivering her package. (Boy was he a devoted FedEx guy!)
But he did pick a direction...that was a movie I wished had gone on to tie up the loose ends of his life. After all, the viewer got so emotionally involved in his life-why end it at the road? Let me see him happily married and welding with that lady!
So my cross road is here with the pretty lawn and trees and flowers and birds. I guess it's hard to explain-because I am happy in my home with my husband-but I want to do more, and don't have a clue......I seem to keep coming up with my shortcomings, and get kinda stranded on that island....
But I have been making people. Big people, little people. Lots of them.
And I've been loving the flowers and the birds....
"It's empty, Mom. Can't you see that?"
"I can't believe she doesn't fill this suet feeder..."
This is a mad chickadee look, in case you didn't know. (above)
Well, this look is pretty mad too.
"I'll just ignore her. Then she'll put more suet in here."
They sing that happy little song, no matter what.
There's a lot to be learned from birds...
