Gentle strength and bird brains

I am thankful today for my husband. Actually, I’m thankful for him every day, but today I will share this short video to give you a view of his gentle strength as he frees a bird tangled in the garden netting.

Please pardon my hoarse voice. I’ve been hacking and coughing for the past 5 days. I imagine the sap-sucker/woodpecker was a bit hoarse after this ordeal, too!

My sincere thanks to Hilary at The Smitten Image for giving me this honor.

    Isn’t it lovely when the people we love so dearly are displaying, quite clearly, one of the key reasons we fell in love with them in the first place?
