I Saw A Robin Pecking In The Snow

Here is a photo of a robin standing in the snow pecking at the ground for food.

I happened to look out the back door and noticed a few robins hopping around in the fresh snowfall that accumulated in the back yard this morning. It’s kind of funny how little things such as this can bring back memories of people or places.

Nan and Pop always told me when they saw robins in the spring and they were happy because it meant spring is on the way. Even the last year Nan was alive and called me or I called her she’d happily tell me when she saw robins hopping around. I miss both of them more than anyone can imagine. To a point I felt guilty moving away from them since I’d walk to their house and mow their lawn and shovel the snow for them. I actually caught my self starting to dial their old phone number to tell them I saw it.
