What do we know about this bird? You might think, “Not much, it’s just a bird.” But we do know some things. We know it was a local bird. Maybe it’s that same bird that surprised Oscar that one morning with a special present from above. And we know how he died. Flying into the glass doors. But you know what, I don’t think he was being stupid. I think he just really, really wanted to come inside our building to spread his cheer and lift our spirits with a song. Lastly, we can’t help but notice that he was by himself when he died. But of course, we all know that doesn’t mean he was alone.
Because I’m sure that there were lots of other birds out there who cared for him very much.
“Happiness comes in many forms-in the company of good friends, in the
feeling you get when you make someone else’s dream come true, or in the
promise of hope renewed. It’s okay to let yourself be happy because you
never know how fleeting that happiness might be…”
