Our morning run began with Hubby grouching about the cold (only one measly degree plus a breeze out of the west). Before long, I was crabbing at him for seeming to run faster whenever I tried to catch up. So we trotted down the road, grumbling past this pair of bald eagles without even noticing them!
How many people in this world aren’t healthy enough to run or don’t get to run in places where bald eagles perch? How could I be so ungrateful?
Mercifully, the pair was still perched in the tree when we came back up the road!
