Hello everyone and welcome to the first Friday blessing list of March. It feels so good to say March – even for this winter lover!
Even though the Island is still snow-covered, I felt the warmth of the sun on my face this week and heard the sound of running water. And it might take a bit of imagination, but I know there’s some tiny springtime bulbs snuggled down under that blanket of snow just waiting to shoot their sweet blossoms up toward the sky.
1.It’s been such a full week at A Sparrow’s Home with many blessings counted and many shared. Last Friday we waved goodbye to our church’s mission team as they headed off on their Guatemala adventure.
2. Josie had a fun time last week with Kathleen’s parents. And now she’s with us – sitting beside me right now as I finish up the blessing list. Her favourite breakfast? Oatmeal porridge with raisins and brown sugar just like Grampie. Although we’re missing Daddy, Mummy and “Zaiah”, we’re looking forward to five more lovely days together!
3. There were two new birds on our feeder this week. At first glance Roger and I thought one was a Bluejay. Then we had a closer look, and to our total surprise and delight, it was a Bohemian Waxwing.
I wish this was my photo but, unfortunately, my camera was in the car. I was so disappointed. Oh well, I hope he comes back for another visit.
Our second visitor has been here before but hadn’t made an appearance this year. The Red-breasted Nuthatch is such a tiny bundle of energy that it was hard to get a clear shot. He was constantly flitting from the feeder to the tree.
Captured in flight. I love when that happens!
4. A very special event happened this week. Who can believe a year has passed since this sweet little boy joined our family?
A Teddy Bear Picnic Birthday celebration is planned for when the travellers return. Fun times!
5. If I can’t quite enjoy springtime here on the Island, I can enjoy it via pictures from my UK family. Spring is just beginning in London and swinging in the park is a perfect way to celebrate!
Well, a little girl is patiently waiting for me to finish my Friday Fave so that we can do this together.
Thanks so much for dropping in ~ I’m so glad you did!
