I, like many of you, never ever thought I would find myself in this situation of confined to home with life as we know it turned upside down due to the virus threat. I know so far, I am one of the lucky ones having continued good health for myself and loved ones. So many have suffered great loss due to this pandemic and it is heartbreaking.
At times, I wonder if life will ever resume the normal daily activities we all enjoyed and took for granted. The mere act of feeding the birds has even taken a backseat for me, the most passionate bird lover around. Though, I still smile when I hear the beautiful songbirds waking up each morning singing their praises for another day.
It’s hard not to get depressed and give up on the things you once loved to do, when the supplies you need are no longer readily available.
I have been trying to continue growing my flowers and garden but with limited resources it has become a challenge. Just when I think it’s useless to continue, a very friendly mockingbird visits me checking out the greenery on my patio.
It made me stop and realize a pity party is ok once in awhile when things seem out of control, but it is important to shake those negative feelings and find happiness in the small things that matter to you.
As we are all so painfully aware lately, life can be cut short without warning, so we should make the most of each moment. So with that in mind, I will move forward in a positive manner with my garden and bird feeding plans. I am determined not to let this years memories be only of the sad, unhappy, virus ridden ones.
Try to find some happiness in feeding the birds, and may you smile a little at the birdseed in your shoe.
