Nesting (226/365)

God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.

TIME:  10:00 PM
PLACE:  My desk
SUBJECT:  Bird in a nest

This little bird and its nest hitched a ride with the roses HandsomeHusband sent me for our 1st date anniversary (20 years) back on July 28th.  Our florist places these little birds sitting in their moss nests in her bouquets as her signature.  After the roses faded, I plucked the bird out of the arrangement and stuck it in a pencil holder that sits on my desk – I’m sentimental that way.  I spent a lot of time sitting at my desk today, attempting to uncover it under the layers of papers, receipts, magazines and books.  I think I may have found it!
