Thoughtful Thursday…10/27/22

Last Tuesday when I came home from work, I was filling my bird and squirrel feeders. Just before I went out there were four squirrels running around the trees, playing and chasing each other. It was the cutest thing. Of course, once Romeo got out, they went scrambling for the trees and made their way to the neighbors’ yards. I put my puppy inside and continued filling the feeders. While I was filling my new peanut holder, I heard a little chatter and looked over to see one of my squirrels tottering above the round bird feeder.

Since I had a peanut in my hand, I very slowly turned and stood for a minute. When the squirrel stayed in place, I ever so slowly lifted my hand and held it nearer. The little cutie came about a foot closer so we were less than a foot away from each other. It started to reach out towards the peanut, but reconsidered and backed up. This went on for several minutes. I finally had to go and get other things done, but it gave me hope that there may yet come a day when I will earn his trust and he will let me give him a peanut. It was very sweet being able to be up close and personal with him.

That evening, my encounter inspired me to create the little drawing above. I like the saying because I think this little guy was a blessing sent to brighten my day. Thank you, God!

Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful.

    I hand feed several squirrels on our railing each day. With time, you will gain their trust.

    Seems Price was often quotable, even when words were not set to music.
