Totally Thankful Thursday, and how sweet is this?

I have so much to be thankful for, but sometimes I forget and focus on the trials instead of the blessings...here's a few that popped into my mind.
1. I get to see my family in Idaho next week!!!!!!
2. I worked in the yard yesterday for a while, and it felt wonderful to be out in the fresh air!!!
3. My laundry is caught up!!(for two seconds)
4. I'm still throwing up numerous times daily, but have been able to get some things done, and have more energy!
5. Ashie is crawling all over me as I write this, and being so silly. I love it!!

*********************
Yesterday while out in the flowers, I found some of the decor that goes around my door that had fallen out. This is what it looks like around my door.
I thought a bird had been building a nest up in the grapevine, because every time someone would open the storm door, a bird would fly off. Anyway, I got the ladder out and while putting the flowers and toole back in I saw the nest, and decided to take it out and show it to Jibbity. When I reached up to look at it and take it out, this is what I saw...
How sweet is this?!? There are actually three little birds in there, and they made my day. As I was tucking in a flower above my porch light I noticed this...
Another nest with eggs inside.
They were just beautiful, and after I let Jibbity climb the ladder, see both of the nests, and took a couple of pics, I left them alone. Now as I sit here by my open living room window, and hear the sweet sounds of birds chirping...I like to think they are the precious little babies we discovered yesterday above our door. It makes me smile!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Your home must be cozy for the birdies to make themselves at home. How sweet. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Thank you for sharing that sweet story about the birds. I LOVE birds. A few years ago robins built a nest in the wreath on my front door. How fun that was. every time we would come in that door the mother would dive bomb us. It really was fun. I am sooo jealous.
