A storm was rolling through my neighborhood bringing wind and heavy rain. I watched what I considered to be both a miracle of nature and the epitome of parenthood unfold in my front yard. A pair of robins had built a nest in a dogwood tree in front of my bay window and as the storm hit, the two robins perched face-to-face on opposite sides of the rim of their nest and spread their wings to enshroud the two baby robins in the nest.
