A Way –
Several weeks ago I discovered by accident a small nest which had been hollowed out in a dead stump (https://thewannabesaint.com/2017/03/18/new-life-in-dead-things/). Yesterday, while doing some yard work I came across the stump again and looked inside to see if the mother bird had returned to her nest or abandoned it after the chaos of her home and offspring being picked up and moved. To my relief and delight the mother did return, nursed her young and now the nest was empty. In spite of the turmoil life still happened.
It was a wonderful reminder that life even with all its challenges, difficulties and fear isn’t easy to stop. We exist in a world where there are so many dangers and threats to life and a fair, egalitarian living for everyone. With all the craziness in the world, countries gone wild and threatening other nations and the planet that perhaps we are near the end. I still choose to believe that life will find a way.
