I am sure all of us at some time or another have seen, or heard, something that makes our heart swell to such an extent, we are overcome with emotion.
This can simply be laughter from a children’s playground, a baby’s giggle, the antics of a pet, a piece of music, poetry, perhaps a letter or surprise visit from friends or a loved one.
The other day I got back to the boat and felt all mushy.
That’s the only way I can describe it, but it was a heart warming mushiness, though Hubby got a little anxious when I teared up.
I had been up to the ladies, and on the way back, the top of the dog walk was full of redwings. I did a post about them the other day and how many we saw in the Avenue, but I saw as many, if not more, here and stopped in wonder (google images) to watch.
To see so many in such close proximity, I cursed for not having my camera, but the feel good factor just rocketed off the scale watching these beautiful birds foraging in the grass for grubs.
I passed by without them taking flight and made my way back to the boat.
Half way down the pontoon, I saw the little wren that is making her nest under the walkway. Again, she didn’t fly away as I passed.
Not for them warm and dry lodgings or all mod cons in a cosy boat or house.
