Hannah's horse, Flicka, peacefully passed away this morning. Hannah and I were at her side as she slipped away. It was a sad and tender moment and Hannah handled it very well.

I'm thankful for the many happy times with Flicka and all the great times she and Hannah had together. Hannah showed amazing love and commitment to her horse, Flicka.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom, and to all mothers!!!

My mother is in the gold outfit with us three girls (I'm in the middle). We're here with our aunt Robin and little cousin Milty.
My aunt Sharron has been like a mother to me and I love the picture of her pushing me on the swing.
I'm inspired by the birds who show such dedication and commitment to their young.

I am privileged to be a mother and thank God for this incredible gift.

Lovingly dedicated to the Blessed Mother, the greatest mother of all!

Purple Martins

This morning I saw 4 purple martins! This made my day! :)

I've been trying to attract them to my purple martin house for a couple of years now and it's a big challenge since the house sparrows and starlings try to take it over every year. I kick them out, of course!
A couple of years ago, I got up real early (before the sun was up) and put on a tape which was supposed to attract them to the bird house. Can you believe that? I could barely believe it myself :0

Well, it's time to get the purple martin house out of the attic and try again. My neighbor said it took her four years but now she has lots of purple martins!

The Amish are know for their love of purple martins and almost every Amish farm we visited in PA. had great purple martin houses. I wonder how they deal with the house sparrows and starlings...
