Leap Into Grace by Heather King

I took this today. If I could spend time with her each and every day before she flies back home I would. How I wish I had access to see her always. I realize that she has a home, a family, and needs to return but it actually hurts my heart knowing I do not know when I will see her again.
She gives me peace and serenity in such ways mere words are an injustice.
My irregular heartbeat returns to normal, my blood pressure lessens, there is no anxiety, no past, nothing whatsoever except for serenity and love.
I have to be honest, I spent a lot of time weeping this evening knowing she will be fleeing near the end of this month. I do not know what I am going to do. She gave me something I have never known or felt before. I love her. The time I do not get to see her, I worry, hoping that she is being treated kindly, safely and eating well.

    how to describe such a magnificant creature….
    her strength, courage, determination, mystique
    the hold she has on your heart is plain to see and feel
    there is a purity in her presence
    it was a priviledge to be able to have had the chance to experience this
    with you honey

    Gorgeous she’s dancing for you! I understand Heather but she’s wild and that’s how it’s meant to be. She will more than likely return, they usually do! In the meantime you’ve had this amazing blessing which you can always hold in your heart, those images are imprinted on our psyche. I’ve felt very sad too, especially when Harriet left, but I would much rather they stay wild and free and experience their life as they’re meant to!

  • Thank you for your sweet words Deborah ♥ You felt the same way when Harriet left as well? I am with you though, I would much rather they stay wild and free…we are so blessed that they chose us to really see them and feel their souls:)

    I know exactly how you feel, I grow to love the birds I watch regularly at it hurts when I see something bad happen to them, its the heart that is so tender, I admire that in you Heather :)

  • Thank you Larry! There are really some amazing folks here on RB, you being one of them, that I am so glad to know…It’s hard not to fall madly and utterly in love with them isn’t it? Just today I was in one of my favourite places and I seen a sweet little chickadee with a broken leg. Instantly my heart broke. These chickadees are so friendly they eat out of your hand. This poor little thing was shivering. I asked the people looking at him ‘what can we do to help him’ and someone said ‘nothing, he’s going to die’. So cold and heartless. I refuse to accept that. I actually broke down in tears in heartache for the little fellow. I’m going back tomorrow and every day to see if I can find him so I can take him to a wild care bird centre. thanks for your kind comments:)

    Most people wont even slow down to avoid hitting a squirrel, cold hearted, but they are the ones crying the loudest when they are in need….
