The water, the spring air, the green-green trees are all so very peaceful! And in the sky above the lake, eagles. Bald eagles! Bald eagles courting. So the birds were whistling, diving, circling... beautiful!
SO beautiful and miraculous that it made my throat get tight with gratitude. And this thought: this beauty has been here all along. While we were raising kids in the suburbs, no eagles in sight, the eagles were here. I don't know, but that thought just got me. Why did it take us so long?! But that's not the thing to dwell on, is it?

We've also got a Bird Show at the feeders outside our bedroom window each morning! I had to get out the bird field guide to help us identify them all. :) I am loving it. Very fitting for this 2018, Year of the Bird -- and for my 2018 One Little Word BEHOLD.
