Yesterday, while giving my car a bath, a very small bird came to watch. Soon after, another. They looked like babies, and after a while I realized they were probably either just learning how to fly, or practicing. Their mom was probably not too far away, and I found myself thinking a lot about my own two “birds,” because as parents, one of our biggest tasks is to teach our birds how to fly and I believe, one of our greatest gifts, is watching them do so.
The more we watch animals in nature, the more we see that we really all have the same basic needs and wants. Food, companionship, a safe place to rest, a little attention and offspring that learn to fly.
Wishing our youngest bird, KyleZipp, the one that made our little nest complete, a very, very happy 29th.
Wishing everyone a day filled with all the best that Mother Nature has to offer.
