I don't why but I'm in a baby mood. No I'm not pregnant ( those days are long gone for me). Maybe it was that pup I found or maybe because the start of spring is just days away, but my mind has gone to baby animals. I am always amazed to see the love animal moms have for their young.
Quite a few years ago I went out and saw that a fledgling bird had broken its leg and was trapped in the rod Iron scrolls of a small kid's bench I had outside. Lord knows how long it was there. As I tried to free it the momma bird kept swooping down at the sounds of her chicks painful chirps. After I called a vet's office they told me since the fledgling had feathers and was almost ready to fly anyway it was better to let the Momma bird take care of him, because there wasn't much they could do for a bird's broken leg.
I was able to free it and for days he lay on the ground hopping around and like clockwork the Momma bird would come down to feed it. After a while he was gone and I thought the worst. The next year a bunch of birds were in the yard and there was one with a bit of a deformed leg hopping around. I knew it had to be the little bird from the previous year. His mom fed him and protected him until he was able to fly. I just know it.
Here are some pictures of babies and their moms and what they would say if they could speak in our language. Kids words are in Green. Moms are in Purple
"Oh yes that's really scary honey! good job!"
"Gentle kisses sweetie...gentle kisses!"
"That's right...a lot, but do you listen? nooooooo!"
"But it's hard mom!"
"But nothing, you have got to try."
"This is just great! Every single time I have to be at work early this happens!"
"Mama. I love you"
"And I love you"
On the Earth there is no love greater than the love that a mother has for her child. Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Blessings, Joanne
