There’s always something to be thankful for and if you don’t believe it, just look around at the beauty of the natural world.
Earlier this month we visited Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, thousands of acres of salt and freshwater marshes, grasslands and forest that provide a rich stopping place for migratory birds.
The crown of Mt. Rainier can be seen in the background, its glaciers the source of the Nisqually River which flows into Puget Sound forming the estuary.
We saw hundreds of birds
including a Great Blue Heron
and two young snow geese that dropped by from Russia.
I love wildlife and when I can’t get away I’m thankful for my backyard sanctuary where nuthatches come by to drink
and hummingbirds to feed.
I’m thankful for another kind of wildlife too of the feline variety – Benji
