This summer I had the pleasure of watching many Barn Swallows feeding their young hatchlings. There were nests lined up all along the awnings, like a little bird community.

I’ve been reading about this little scaly creature called a Pangolin… they are incredible ant eating mammals who carry their young on their tail!

Its sad though, every time I google or youtube search to see more pictures of them there are so many results that are about how they are being poached and killed to be sold on the black market. :’ (

They seem so sweet and helpless, like all they want to do is roam around and eat ants with their sticky tongue.

I was walking to the store when I saw a little hopping bird near our apartment’s field, which was being mowed at the time. The chick was obviously very scared of the lawn mower and of me..

So I blocked the way to the nearby busy street (So it wouldn’t be hit by a car) and it hopped into a tree where we waited for momma/daddy bird to come to the rescue.

Maybe the little chick was trying to learn to fly when it was separated from its parent?

Innocence

Today our good friend and neighbor’s cat gave birth to her kittens.

There were 6 kittens total. All of them are beautiful and beloved of their mother. It was a great day of happiness and yet one of them didn’t make it. It was my sad duty to help prepare a coffin for the little one.

It must not have been meant to go through this life if God has come for this one so soon. It was tragic and also so peaceful seeming… I hope that this one will be in the arms of our lord and that the mother’s other kittens are blessed in health to bring happiness to all they meet.

Thanks to everyone who reads this, I hope this disturbing news hasn’t brought anyone down, there are still 5 healthy kittens who I pray will thrive!

Flying KITTEN

Just a reminder to us all that we should reach for the stars and follow our dreams!

(Unless they are bad scary dreams, in which case they are nightmares. Stay away from those.)
