. The area that needs the most attention is directly under where the chickens roost at night. Although the hens are out & about roaming the acreage in the fresh air as I work, I'm inside a 12x12 coop with chicken wire for windows and less than excellent ventilation. I am also painfully mindful that I'm shoveling in a hazard zone under those rungs... whether it's banging my head on one above me or discovering that there's something not-so-pleasant hanging right over my head!
I had almost finished up that chore when my mind said, "Wonder what view they have from their roost as they get ready for the darkness of night & wake with the sun each day. I carefully raised my head to what would be their eye level while roosting. What I saw was a great reminder that often when we look up or around from our tasks, chores, challenges... we will see something of beauty.
Our hens have a "Room with a View" aka a coop with a view :)
