The Little Things 

   |studying my life away|

I finally have a life again.  I took my Masters of Public Health comprehensive exam last Friday. I couldn’t be happier to have finished. Well I’ll be happier when I found out I pass. Studying had taken over my life so I’m so happy to be able to breathe again. I have a whole plan for when I graduate in a month, including many home improvement projects, which I will be sure to blog about. One month and 2 bigs papers left. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can do it! Have a great weekend!

A Tale of a Mama Hummingbird and Young

Once upon a time, there was a hummingbird who flew merrily around the backyard of a lovely couple.  She flew from flower to flower sipping the sweet nectar.  One day Mrs. Hummingbird began to build a nest upon a petite cafe light strung across the couple’s patio.  She took time to construct the perfect home for her future babies.  She laid her eggs in her carefully constructed nest and patiently waited.  She tirelessly stood guard of her young. After much anticipation from both mama hummingbird and her neighbors, the hummingbirds hatched.  The babies peeked their beaks out of the nest, eager for their mom to fill their bellies.  The babies shook the nest with excitement.  As the babies grew, the man of the house became fearful that the tiny nest would come crashing down.   To ensure the safety of his new neighbors he created a mountain of pillows beneath the hummingbird home.  The babies quickly outgrew their tiny cafe light home.  The babies made their first flight to the next string of cafe lights and soon left the nest for good.  Their neighbors were sad to see them go, but happy to have met them and hope they visit often.
