    As I write this column, I am enjoying the beauty of the morning. The sun is shining, the temperature is just right with a slight breeze. 

    Plus, our very own resident fawn is outside my kitchen window enjoying some delicacy from around the wild cherry tree. The hummingbirds are flittering around again, fighting over the homemade food I am now giving them.

    They, too, are such a joy to watch this morning.
