A Little Birthday Bird Told Me...

Some mothers know just what to do

to build a cozy nest.

They know where every twig belongs

and choose only the best.

Their young are nurtured carefully

in colors warm and bright.

To comfort and protect them brings

these mothers pure delight.

They gather feed to fit each need,

till every mouth is filled.

Their eyes are ever watchful, and

their love songs never stilled.

How wonderful such mothers are. 

What beauty they impart.

How blessed the little ones they bear

and care for, heart to heart.

Dedicated to my mother, Darlene Robbins,
and her very cozy
Robbins Nest ~
where every child 
finds love enough
to grow. 

Happy Birthday, Mom!
Would you be mad if I told
everyone how old you are today?
Because you sure don't look 87!


We love you.
Sue, Dave, and the FAM
(Are you wearing your new necklace??)

Thanks for your visit to JoyToday! The answer to your question on how I was able to capture those photos - the right place, the right time, a zoom lens, lots of photos, and pick the best!

I miss your mom and her blog so very much. She was always so interesting. I hope she had a most wonderful birthday. Maybe some day you could do an update on how she is doing?
