On Tuesday I will be headed to Dallas, TX to fly to Phoenix then on to SLC, Utah and eventually end up in Idaho :) I have so many wonderful people in my life and I am very excited to spend time with them. I am a little torn cuz I have to leave my life & friends here in Oklahoma behind for a month. . .I gotta say, riding my horse is a big push for me to come home. I miss riding sooooo much. Idaho weather is just a little cold still. . .well, compared to here in Oklahoma :)
So we had some birds build a nest right by our apartment's front door. There was 3 of them. One sat in the nest and the other two had 'watch' posts they would sit at. They had been there about . . .maybe 2-3 weeks (I am not sure) then one day we found their nest had been purposely knocked down and it laid on the ground with 5 eggs in it. . . I couldn't stand it, the birds were so confused. Bryan picked up the nest and found another spot to set it since the spot it was originally wasn't able to support it because the birds had secured it to the wall with mud. The birds found the nest and started sitting in it again. That only lasted about 3 or so days. I woke up and the nest was once again knocked off, but this time the eggs had broke and the nest was laying on the ground 3 floors down. All was lost. I was very sad.
The birds surprised me though. It wasn't' more than a day when I noticed the original nest spot was being re-constructed. Those birds had another nest built with 2 days and they are back to sitting at their posts. It made me think.. . Those birds didn't know how to complain, get depressed, focus on the fact their nest was destroyed cuz what good would that do them? They did the one thing they could. . .they started to rebuild. Life can be rough and it can destroy our "nest" aka things we have worked hard to accomplish, goals, dreams, or just our life in general. When life destroys our nest we should be like the birds and realize that all we can do is begin to rebuild. ...
