This morning, I spent some time watching the fox hole out back. I was hoping to catch a closer glimpse of the new litter of cubs.
To my surprise, a few minutes after I got set up they began to emerge from the den, one at a time. I counted at least four cubs, plus the mom. As adorable as it was to watch them play together, I must say, I am still in complete awe of the mother and her instincts.
Over the past month I’ve seen her pouncing in the snow for mice, dragging back ducks, birds, even a skunk. It seems anytime I look out my back door she is perched on the hill, keeping watch, while her cubs are frolicking around or feasting on something she managed to bring home.
To me, this mornings experience was another testament of the importance of our Mothers. This one is for @merylgirl3 @l.a.leylek and all the loving, patient, hardworking women out there. Thank you for everything you do! ❤️
