Lesson 1265 – Tiny Miracles

By Wendythomas @wendyenthomas

Because I know this is something you’ve all wondered about – here is a photo of that abandoned House Finch egg compared to one of our standard chicken eggs. Pretty amazing, huh?


What I can’t for the life of me figure out is how a creature that small when born can ever survive. But they do. They sure do and then they follow that magic act by growing up and eventually flying off to live their own lives.

Next time you have those little negative thoughts of “I can’t do it” think of the guys who come out of these impossibly tiny eggs. They perform a miraculous feat on day one of their lives and then just keep on going from there.
