With all the sadness in the world today, I had a sudden boost of spirit this morning. Returning home from the grocery store, what a surprise to find a flock of wild turkeys pecking around the front yard. Seven. The number of completion and perfection.
The timing of their visitation was amazing. Yesterday the turkeys crossed my mind, sadly thinking they were gone for good now that the back woods is under heavy construction. But against all odds, the happy brood returned. Big, beautiful, young feathered harbingers of thanksgiving and gratitude. A sign that there is more going on than meets the physical eye, so keep the faith, and give thanks for everything.
I ran inside the house, grabbed my camera, and stood at the living room window to look out, so as not to frighten the skittish birds away. LOL. One turkey was especially close to the window, standing in a clay flower pot! That was a first! Maybe a signal to keep my feet planted in good soil and to keep growing toward the light to bloom.
Peace and love,
