TAKE A WORD - NATURE
NATURE is our word for inspiration at Take A Word this week and that reminded me of last year's very harsh Winter. I remember I had just happened to look out of the window as a tiny humming bird landed on my garden fence. Now even I know humming birds are not found in the UK which meant he must be lost, and worse still, starving hungry out there in the snow. So I took a crisp, juicy apple and placed in the garden hoping it would keep him alive. Well, the next morning sure enough that apple had been bitten, but oh such a large bite I thought, for such a tiny bird! It was then I noticed the snowman who appeared to be watching that poor little bird's every move, and that little humming bird was looking hungry and oh so sad! Life can be cruel!
