Learn To Appreciate

Warning: The following image is heart breaking. At least it was to me. So.. if you are in a good mood and you don't want to ruin it, you should probably leave. Now. But I am teaching a little lesson here today through the animal kingdom.

Here we go.... Again...... if you are happy, you should leave.

The mother has lost most of her ducklings down the sewer. Sad, isn't it?

My little lesson was that whenever you think that things are just down in the dumps for you, think of those who probably have it worse. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. When you ask for courage, you are not simply given it. You are given a situation where you must find courage to overcome it. Stop thinking so hard.

Hi there.... ;>
Thank you for not giving up on my blog. And thank you for the comments you leave that are always so motivating. Been going through a lot lately but not as bad as the mommy duck :{
I'd like to think someone tried to lift the grate to try and get the babies out... Take care Ellie.

I see the milk carton is as bouncy as ever :>

By the way, I used a Nikon Coolpix P80 for the photographs. A lot of people and reviews aren't too flattering about it, but I like what it can do. Later. Me
