Day 17, Small Pause, "Curve Balls"

Today's Small Pause ...

When life throws you curve balls, it is within the storm you must find calm. I was reminded of this truth recently with my son's hospitalization.

Today nature exemplified this point as a winter storm whirled about outside. My winged friends sought refuge today as strong winds tossed them to and fro. They fought their way to our feeders taking small pauses to rest and feast. 

Within the storm, they found delight in a common routine. They took time to rest before they ventured back into the snowy air. Their rest stop provided sustenance to endure the driving snow and navigate challenging winds. Renewal was part of their plan in order to withstand stormy conditions. 

Nature always whispers truths... we just have to pay attention in order to hear her whispers.


"The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over. 

~Aesop Quotes

I would love to hear your thoughts or small pause today! Please feel free to share in the comment section below. 


  1. Birdy goings on often look exhausting to me, with unlimited bouncing and flitting about, but your thought provoking post pointed out their restful behaviours. Thanks for the pointing out the pauses for renewal and orderliness in birdy nature!

  2. You made me chuckle Robyn, regarding how busy birds can be. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment on my post. I do agree though--they are quite a busy lot for sure!
