Nesting, isn't that the inate desire and responsibility of a woman? Feathering the
nest, creating a safe and beautiful home for our families, somewhere to find shelter,
comfort, security and most of all, love. This mama bird built her fortress in a cholla
cactus, thorny stickers supporting and protecting the nest from danger.
How incredibly symbolic is this ? We human mamas fight to build a sanctuary
for our most precious treasures...our family, keeping them safe from dangers
so frequently found in the world around us, asking for the hedge of thorns to
surround them in their journey through life. So much is reflected in nature.
