Wings of Love

This picture of these pretty white doves was taken in Houston after Mary's funeral in Beaumont .... in the parking lot of "Taste of Texas"! I thought it very unusual to see such pretty love birds just sitting there on the fence. They were so sweet looking ~ I tried to capture their beauty in a picture. This one doesn't do the justice it deserves, but I will take it.

I'm blogging this picture today because I had a little tan dove appear at my feet this morning when I walked out my door. I stopped short in my path when I heard the quiet coo-coo-coo of the bird. I moved the garbage I was carrying so I could see where it was going. I stood as quiet as I could... when I moved a couple feet it fluttered up but didn't go far... it was still near me. I put the things in my car & walked over to where it landed, it fluttered again but still didn't go far. It was such a pretty sight and sound. A great way to start my day. That's why I posted my pretty lil dove birds from last March. It's such a rarity to see a dove in the wild, that when I do see one or some, they are always a treat. A comfort to smooth any sadness away.

Soothing signs ~ reminding me I'm not alone!

Aww- so sweet! I think it's wonderful how you and I stop for birds (I'm sure some people wonder what I'm doing roaming around in my yard with my camera- he he).

It was so good to talk to you the other day- thanks for cheering me up. Love ya!!

P.S. Those doves were Mary's way of saying you and Chad needed to get married!!
