A few days ago I watched this beautiful Savannah Sparrow sing from his heart. I could feel how happy he was, enjoying the sunshine and warm breeze.
I know there are scientific explanations for why birds sing, but to me their lovely melodies are a reminder to be grateful.
When I look back over my life so far, I realize it has been a rich adventure, filled with blessings, joy, challenges and lessons.
And in my heart of hearts, I know I signed up to experience it all...to immerse myself fully, to bravely face the uncomfortable, and to remember to ask for help from the seen and unseen.
I know that the human experience is not for the faint of heart, and I recognize that I'm a work in progress.
And this lovely bird’s song reminds me to be grateful for it all…
