Three Little Birds

In the spring of 2012, a pair of Cardinals nested in a bush outside our kitchen window. Their presence stopped us all in our tracks, and each day that we had the good fortune to watch them, they reminded us of how precious life is and how important it is to savor each moment with each other.

The babies have grown and moved on. We miss them and long to have them back in our kitchen window… I have so much empathy for “empty nesters”.

This is a 2:25 video, a dedication to my own children. Mother, Father, Grandparents, Son or Daughter… We can all relate to “Three Little Birds.”

    It’s not letting me watch it either, so naturally I want to watch it EVEN MORE! ahhh!!

    PS: I don’t even have kids and I totally have sympathy for empty-nesters!! My godchildren are growing up so fast–I can only image the 10X feelings my friends a experiencing as their parents!

    Oh my that was LOVELY! Even Joshua stopped to watch it although he thought the babies were “disgusting.” I can’t believe they are gone already. You are a great video editor!

    Thanks! My kids will love watching this.
    Last year, we had ‘Phoebe the Hummingbird”s website bookmarked and spent hours every day watching to see what would happen with her eggs.

    For whatever reason, I’m having issues getting it up, too. But I hear you on feeling for the empty nesters- what a transition that must be!

    Don’t even get me started on kids leaving the nest. I’m in tears about my youngest starting school next Fall, lol. I should be happy to have the free time but I want to keep them with us forever. Poor moms, we work so hard to raise them then they have the nerve to leave us 😉

      Kris, were you able to see the video? Some had trouble.. I ran into some issues… oops. Oh yes, kids they drive us crazy (my son refused to eat this elaborate breakfast I made yesterday but then proceeded to eat his boogers..sigh) We want them to be independent and then we miss them when they are. I feel sorry for them.. how confusing is that? haha Thank you for you comments Kris.. xo
