Why watch a bird?


As I woke up this morning
I stumbled into my kitchen to do my dishes
I was half groggy and half asleep
As I was doing my dishes and looked out the kitchen window
I saw this beautiful blue bird, it was like a violet blue, and it was rust colored
It wasn’t a blue bird
I wasn’t sure what kind of bird it was
It was sitting on top of my patios table closed umbrella just perched
Looking all around just like taking in the scene, the scenery around him

After sitting there awhile
The bird then flew to a garden hanging stand I have in the lawn
There is nothing on It, it sits high above the ground
The bird then sat there for a while
Then after the bird sat on the garden stand for a while
The bird then flew over on to a telephone wire
Sitting on a telephone wire
I was watching the bird sit on the telephone wire
I was just like so enamored by this bird flying one place to another

I was thanking the bird for visiting and blessing the bird
And with that a beautiful little yellow bird flew into the property
Along with other birds
All of a sudden there was a bird show going on
As I was saying thank you for visiting me
I was so taken little animals looking for food
Or fluttering around for the day in the morning
How they do this continually

So many times I don’t even look at them and appreciate them
Which made me think in life
How many things do I see that I just don’t appreciate?
I am learning as time goes by to appreciate things more and more
And I really appreciate the visitation of these birds
Now there are a few of them sitting on the telephone wires
My wires are not underground, they are above ground
I am looking at them just
Balancing themselves on this wire
Life can be a balancing act
And with balance and appreciation our day unfolds in such a different way
