SMACK! You know the sound... a bird has hit the window, poor thing.
My oldest had been standing near the door and peeked outside to see a little goldfinch passed out on the patio. Our curious dog, who routinely chews on cinder blocks, was sniffing it. It was alive, but really out of it so I told him to put it somewhere safe before the cement-chewing dog decided to have a tender little snack. He gently picked it up and walked out into the yard. He must have been trying to find just the right spot, or maybe just enjoying holding this sweet little creature, because he walked around for a while. Before he could find a place to set him the tiny bird awoke.
She slowly started coming to, sitting upright in my boy's hand and clutching him with her tiny feet.
She allowed me to take a few photos and when I lowered my lens, she promptly flew off, leaving us both amazed and grinning in his wake.
May you all be left amazed and grinning at something today.
