This is by far the most adorable thing I have ever heard. And it was written by my sweet Mama.
"Hi! We have a dove that has made her nest in the guttering on the garage, just outside the front door. She's been sitting on the nest now for about a week and a half. I looked it up and supposedly it takes about 2 weeks for the eggs to hatch. She never leaves the nest, unless maybe she does during the night. I feel so sorry for her when it's raining out and she's getting pelted with rain drops...only a mother would do what she's doing!!
Anyway, I call her "mama" and talk to her everyday (is that crazy, or what??)."
