Mother of All Instincts


Mags: "I spy with my little eye a Mama bird in her nest."

It took me a minute, but I found her and snapped a picture. When I looked at the picture, I thought about how it really summed up motherhood across the species.


Nurturing
Selfless
Comforting
Loving 

And she'll peck your face off if you get too 
close to take a picture of her nest. 
Yep. That's a mom for ya!

  1. I don't doubt it for a second. Can you believe I was once attacked by a mother goose when I walked past her and her baby goslings? She flew at me and pecked my cranium. I kid you not. My husband and son still tease me about it. Because they sat and watched the whole pitiful display. Maybe this explains my aversion to nursery rhymes...

  2. I was just talking to a friend about this yesterday. She was unwilling to say anything about a situation her son was in. I told her she had to be the Mama Bear (or in this case - bird) and stick up for her son. I love this analogy. Not always easy for us humans.

  3. I never knew I had those emotions inside me until I had the boys, and now I know that I would die for them, I would hurt anyone who hurt them.

    it's the nature of love, to protect, cherish and peck. ;)

    hope your Mother's Day was amazing!
