Bird watching.

This morning we were thrilled to look out the window and see a couple of robins sitting on our porch. This is an important sign in our life because it make it seem like winter finally is about to come to an end. We looked out the other window shortly thereafter and saw a couple of cardinals. My son immediately wanted to find his vortex binoculars and head out in the backyard to see what else might be out and about. It is neat how something as simple as seeing a few birds can lift your winter blues. We were talking just last night about how miserable this winter has been and that it feels like it will never end. I can now say I feel encouraged that winter will come to an end and I will soon be digging in the dirt and planting things once again.
