Disagreeable Moments and Egrets and Crazy Beautiful Clouds and Birds

September 18 2016:

If sibling relationships were always loving and kind, would we know this as a loving and kind relationship? Or must we experience the disagreeable and unkind moments to know how to have a loving and kind relationship?

A day of blaring contrasts for these two. In the present moment perspective, I choose to see it as a day of learning for them. Yet, from the perspective of my past experiences, I struggle with being around arguing and disagreements. Whew!! What a day!!

Went for an after dinner walk so nature could lend a hand! Taking pictures of nature always lifts my spirits. xoxo

Wonderful walk this morning. The egrets seem to be loving it here.

Plus!! I’m so excited! The blue billed ducks have returned!! They are my favorite. I can’t seem to get a photo of them with my phone. Need something a bit fancier.

I’ve experienced kundalini yoga the past 2 days and I love, love, love it. Absolutely amazing!!!

From our walk last night …. Mind the strong wind!! WOW!!! Plus, my phone went dead before Lillian finished.

The rest …. Then she would find a mate, build a nest, lay lots of beautiful eggs, and teach the baby birds to fly.

You gotta watch it to hear the question and beginning of her answer. xoxo
