My talented daughter lives on the beautiful west coast of Canada where she makes pottery and communes with nature.

Here are a couple of examples of her pottery.

More of her pottery can be viewed on her website https://madmudslinger.com/

She recently had an opportunity recently to observe first hand an Eagle family. She sent me pictures of this amazing nest where the Eagle parents are raising their adorable Eaglet. This is what she had to say about the youngster –

“It’s so cute, ever since he’s been big enough he peaks his head over the side while waiting for his parents to come back with food. Interesting that only one hatched this year.”

She also included some information about the nest.

“The nest has been there for years, maybe decades, but 2 years ago a series of storms crashed it to the ground. The site was abandoned until last year when the Eagle couple decided to rebuild. Building is a lot of work, it went into the season so they waited until this year to hatch another family. It’s very exciting. A celebration!”

“An Eagle nest weighs one ton and a VW Beetle can fit inside it. The adult wingspan is 8 feet so they need some room with all the comings and goings.”

She is fortunate to be able to witness this marvel of nature. I’m so happy she shared it with me.

Have you ever had a chance to view wild animals in nature?

 

“Why does the thrill of soaring have to start with the fear of falling?”

Did your Mom, or someone like a mom, ever give you an extra push that helped shape your life? Have you ever had to give your children or someone else a push? It isn’t easy, but so necessary. Without an extra push from time to time we would never accomplish our dreams or become the person we were meant to be.

Here’s to all the Mom’s out there that have given that all important push. It is the greatest gift of all; the supreme act of love and courage.

Perhaps we learn it from nature. I would like to share a wonderful video as my Mother’s Day gift.
