Tailor the American Robin


There are times where I may feel discouraged and have challenging days, yet I am always amazed at the beautiful moments in nature that I truly cherish. Like a sweet honey bee landing on my hand, our Sweet Sammie the Squirrel stopping by to say hello and this sweet American Robin that shows off his/her earth worm victory and appears to have no tail.

Did you arrive in this unique time to help encourage me to stay strong and not feel deferred, while I wait until this storm has passed and all is well? I am always so grateful that nature speaks to my heart and shows me that all life is so precious. I stand with this sweet bird in victory for a new tail. I stand with all the first responders and healthcare professionals for victory in this unprecedented time. We will overcome, we are all in this together, we won’t depart. Thank you sweet bird to be a part of your journey, for our new found friendship. You are amazing!

I named this sweet American Robin, Tailor. I look forward to many visits in our yard and more earth worm victories from this awesome bird.

KAPOW! Tracie
