Turning 81, and heck, let’s get our nails done!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Yes, 81… I wish I could say 18 but then I wouldn’t be born, or writing this post right now… So, sorry mom, I guess you’ll have to turn 81! She might be horrified to know I broadcasted this on Anchor, so shhhhhhh will you??

I’m looking forward to our day together. Some people can’t say they still have their parents, and my heart goes out to them. I am grateful every day to have both of my parent’s and will be taking my mom to lunch and to get her nails done!

My dad will be next with Father’s day around the corner. I will cherish everyday I have with them, and be grateful for every day I have to count my blessings!

Leaving the nest?

Growing up… leaving the nest. Vid: by Sandi, Northern New Mexico.

I nearly had a panic attack. Outside, the sound of birds is a welcome and wonderful song. A world of music that never stops. But when I heard hungry little fledglings that are chirping in desperate need, I went looking for a ladder. Because if something happened to mom, well, Sandi to the rescue!

As I was about to get a ladder, and began my ascent up to bird palace, I noticed the mom fly back to the nest, where she tried to push an anxious baby back into safety, as it seemed to be hanging over the nest nearly losing its footing. She pushed the baby back further into the nest and she flew away when she saw me, so I came back inside.

Don’t worry, I’ll keep an eye out!

Keep growing folks, love one another, and give each other a helping hand. Many blessings, Sandi
