I love blue jay's, they are notorious as being loud and aggressive, especially when they have young in a nest nearby, they will swoop down on cats that encroach to closely, but I love them most because they are fearless.
During the time that we were awaiting Mother's death, in my parent's home, I found a box, in the back of a closet, that was filled with many hand written pages that Mother had written, it seems she also had an affection for poems and quotes.
I have already posted about Mother's death on my other blog @http://missdaisyanne.blogspot.com
"A mother needs a quite time
To renovate her soul;
A quite time to meditate,
To strengthen self control;
A quite time for soothing nerves and vanquishing her wrath;
But most of all a quite time
In which to take a bath."
"Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character and you reap a destiny."
