Something to make me feel better

I'm starting to feel a little better this afternoon - especially after sleeping longer than Rip Van Winkle. Thank you everyone for your get well wishes! Here's my little chickadee friend who I'm always happy to see. Watching the birds is good medicine for the soul.
