I looked out my window at my empty bird feeder as I was feeding my baby this morning. No birds. No birdseed, no birds. My once teeming and colorful porch was bereft of life and feathers. Its not that I had nothing to offer them. I did. There is a whole box full of seeds downstairs. I just have to put them out there.
But I am stuck on the couch with this baby. And as we know, babies don't keep.
I know this. Once I have a moment, I will put what I have out there and they will find their way back to me. I'll get my birds back.
I just have to put myself out there. I have much to offer. But I need this time with my baby, and its OK. I'm not gone, I've not disappeared. I'll be back.
