Soggy Little Birds

It's been raining here in north Georgia for what feels like a month! It has rained so much, in fact, that the Atlanta metro area was on its way to becoming a large lake. There are so many people who have lost their homes, and some have even lost their lives. We have been very blessed so far that flood waters have not been in our neighborhood. Today is the first time in about 5 days that we've seen the sun.
My four year old little girl looked out the window yesterday and asked me, "Is it ever going to stop raining?" Then she said, "It breaks my heart not to go outside." It breaks my heart, too! The girls are going stir crazy, and Mommy is running out of ideas to entertain them.
It seems like the birds were having similar feelings. We rarely see birds at the feeders when it's raining, but yesterday must have been a special day. The birds ventured out for a meal. They were so soggy it made me wish I had an umbrella out there for them.
