Several weeks ago, I noticed a robin building a nest in an evergreen tree near our front door. Then a couple of weeks later, there were 3 tiny blue eggs. They eventually hatched, and my family and I enjoyed another two weeks of watching Mama Robin diligently tend to her babies, zipping around during the early morning hours, retrieving worms for her young.
Today, the nest is empty, and Mama Robin is nowhere to be seen. I’m grateful that we had the opportunity to share in this tiny miracle of nature.
