You know I am as optimistic as you can get, I mean I thought about joining the Optimist Club one day but I found that they were too Pessimistic! :D
At the beginning of last year I never even thought that Pelicans would even come up to Ohio. By the middle of the year I accepted that they fly wherever the food is. But I was totally in disbelief when it was posted on my local bird watchers list that a Pelican was seen on Grand Lake Saint Marys in February, well I just had to go get a picture.
The lake was almost completely ice covered. Except for one little spot where there was a bubbler stirring up the water. Just enough for the Pelican and Herons to feed on the Shad that had the misfortune of passing by.
At the time, the place where I work had some rumors floating around that we would be laid off, closing down and moved off to another location. This Pelican was a reminder to me that in the end, I will be alright because God will supply all of my needs. Whether I lose my job, or some other life event happens, in the end, I KNOW that I and my family will be alright and taken care of. Because God not only takes care of the Sparrows..and the Pelicans :D But he also will take care of me.
