Broken Wings

This cherub stands watch in my flower garden. You'll notice she has a broken wing, but I couldn't get rid of her. That just makes her extra special. She's a reminder, that we all are broken, but we persevere and learn from our mistakes, our shortcomings and are better people for them.
All day, she sees the birds cooling in the bath and hears their sweet songs.

She watches the flowers grow...
and wane...

and the willow branches blow.

Follow the breeze over to Outdoor Wednesday today for many more wonderful posts.

What a sweet post! You got some great shots of those birds, they are not easy to capture with the camera, I have found. Love what you said about not getting rid of the angel, we are all broken in some way. So true, thanks for the reminder. Hugs, ~cindy s~

Hi, Marhsa....Me again. I have given you an award so if you'd like you can drop by my blog and pick it up. Recipients are supposed to, in turn, give it to 15 others. That seemed like a really large number to me and it is rather time consuming, so I am telling everyone they can give it to as many or as few as they want. I'll just leave that up to you. That way it keeps it from becoming a burden and it keeps in the spirit it was given in. I really think you have such a lovely blog and that you certainly deserved it.:)
