And, just like that they are grown and gone. Our four little birdies have flown off to explore the world. We got to watch them hatch, grow, develop feathers, learn to fly… all in a few short weeks. Mornings are a lot quieter now. No baby birds yelling for a morning moth. No more excitement of watching and waiting. They are gone.
I won’t even begin to analyze the similarities between how fast baby birds grow and how fast our children grow. Let’s just say it’s hit me hard lately watching them grow, and I am working hard at enjoying every precious, loud, exhausting moment of it!
