As a Grammie, I don't want to miss opportunities to show my grandchildren that I care about them! Some might look at this picture above and not give it a second thought! When I look at it I see a picture in my mind of him working very hard to make a special gift for his Grammie. Scavaging around his yard gathering up supplies to make something very special for me. Glue was the only thing he needed to complete his masterpiece. He had to wait then . . . . . . . until the next time he could come out to the farm. Mac (my grandson) was so excited, when he got here. He started digging into his backpack, telling me that he had something very special for me. Carefully he presented me with "The Bird". When I first looked at it I was not sure what it was. Now if you looked at it you might not have been able to recognize it at first, either. He started to tell me all the different parts of "My Bird". I love it! He is a genius, if you ask me and I told him so. He was so proud of his piece of art. It had a little tiny part of a feather on the top of it’s head. He asked if I could see it? He used a walnut for the body and seed for the head. Not sure what he used for the tail, but it doesn’t matter. It is his heart that concerns me. The other part is that I am very grateful, in his eyes. My grandchildren love to look at my blog and they are always saying take a picture of this or one of that. They tell me that I, need too put this or that up on my blog. So here I am. I have found a very special place on my shelf for my sweet gift, "The Bird". I know he will want to see that it is there, the next time he comes to the farm. I won’t disappoint him. I am sure you mommas and grandmas have some of the same kind of stories. I would love to hear them.
Our church had church in the park last Sunday morning. It was so beautiful to be outside looking at the blue sky and sitting on the lush green grass. Hmmmm wonder what it was like when Jesus taught the multitudes. I think I would have liked sitting on the side of the mountain. Yesterday was the first time for our new Pastor. He was preaching in Acts 2:42, when the first church started.
As I was listening here came a Momma Duck and her 4 babies. Now I was still listening to the sermon. Promise, but I had to grab my camera and take some pictures of what was happening before my eyes. Sterling Lake is a beautiful lake in our town. We have lots of Canadian Geese and lots of ducks with babies in the spring. I had to take pictures for you to see. They were all close to their momma and then all of a sudden one of the babies took off and all the other babies followed. I think he was not listening to Momma Duck. He went over to some of the houses by the lake.
Aren't they the sweetest? See the naughty little duck take off?
