Bless the Beasts – Day 6

This morning I am remembering a happier time.

I am remembering one foggy morning this past Spring when I came upon a mother Black Duck and her new family.


And the only thing these ducklings knew back then was the love of their Mum…

How warm she kept them at night on the nest, how good things tasted as they learned to find them!


And today all I can hear in my head are the words of this song as I think of these little ones now, coming into harm’s way.

“Bless the beasts and the children;
Light their way when the darkness surrounds them;
Give them love, let it shine all around them.”


“Give them shelter from a storm…”


“Keep them safe, keep them warm.”

– Songwriters: Barry De Vorzon / Perry L Botkin

Dreaming today… of a better day for them all.

Lady of the Lake

One of the prettiest little Lady Mallards I’ve ever seen.

Spotted her at Saquatucket Harbor a few weeks ago.


I think ducks are amazing

Just Ducky

As many of you know, Marmee loves her Ducky.


I often find them together, lying  there on the shelf at the end of the tub.


Ducky shares Marmee’s love for the birds.

Together they watch them flit by the window, back and forth, back and forth.


I try not to eavesdrop on their conversations.

But I think the two of them could talk for hours and never run out of things to say.


Once, when I asked Marmee if maybe she needed a new friend. Maybe someone new? Perhaps a goose, or a monkey, or a piggy?

“Nope…” she replied.

“Just Ducky.”


And there you have it.  ❤

Beauty Lives

Every day I am reminded…


As I paddle along…


That no matter how much ugliness there might seem to be in our world…


Beauty, in all its many forms,

In all its shapes and sizes…


LIVES.

And the only thing I love more than experiencing beauty…


Is sharing it.


‘Night all.  ❤
