The First Robin of the Season
Last evening, when I returned from the grocery store around 7 p.m., I saw several robins in my front yard. One was so big, with a full, red breast.
The picture was clearer, but for me to get it so we could see it, I had to crop it on the phone to upload it. Though a bit fuzzy, you can still see how big he is.
I get excited when I see the first robin of spring. It reminds me that summer is not far behind and that the days will get longer. April to September are my favorite months of the year.
Next week marks three years since I was in the emergency room, which started the ball rolling toward the eventual diagnosis of stage IV Carcinoid Cancer. It was a bleak time in my life.
This robin represents something more to me this year. It is a reminder that life continues on. And sometimes, we are fortunate to be a part of it!
