Empty Nest

Happy Sunday,
Remember this photo from approx. 2 weeks ago? (above) These eggs were so pretty. Hubby has checked on the eggs every day. (He gets so excited.) Pictures were taken through out their growth and today the last bird flew from the nest.

You can see a slide show of the progression here on my AC site. It was so much fun watching these babies grow. I hope you'll take the time to look. The pics are perfect for kids to view too. I do feel more like Spring has Sprung now.

Did you all have a chance to watch the royal wedding? William looked so handsome and Kate was stunning. I so loved the sleeves of her dress. I had the day off and was able to look in on the ceremony on different channels and on the Internet throughout the day. I had watched the wedding of Charles and Diana and was so glad to be able to watch Prince William wed his love. I do like that they are closer in age and have known each other a long while. Diana was so young when she married Charles and they had known each other for such a short time. Ah but that was then and this is now. As you can tell I followed Lady Diana's life and was so saddened when I heard of her accident. But to see William and Harry together, proud and strong, Diana would have been so proud. Didn't you just love the little ones in their finery? They were so cute... And the hats, oh what lovely and ridiculous hats were worn. I had just as much fun seeing the head gear as I did seeing the wedding.

On a different subject, please remember to pray for the victims of the horrible tornadoes this past week in the southern US states. Such destruction, so very sad. Continue to pray for Japan too. And I'm asking for prayer for the mother of a school friend of my daughter. She is on chemo fighting her second bout of lung cancer. Such a sweet lady. Please pray for Mia.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, be Safe,

A lovely and though-provoking post. Plus a nice reminder of a fun day (The Wedding) to cheer us all up when so much awful stuff is going on in the world.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and a big hug from the UK.

Hi Tess,
I love your post. Yes, I watched the wonderful wedding and wanted to cry because Princess Di should have been there. She would have been so proud of her son. And she would love Kate too! You can really tell that they love each other. I think William takes after his mother.
And yes, I love Princess Di and she was so innocent and naive and SO young! And bawled my head off when she was killed. Such a loss for her boys. and for the world.
I am praying for Japan and our tornado victims as well. And you bet I will pray for Mia too.
My best friend of 25 years lost her husband last year of lung cancer and he was only 47!
Blessings to you,

Wonderful pics! The color on the eggs is such a remarkable shade of blue! How nice that you had a chance to watch them hatch and get big enough to leave the nest! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always nice to hear from you! Hugs, Terri
