Special Moment

There are times when you are shaken from your self-centred little world, and become aware of what is around you. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I go out, being naturally shy, I try just go and get what I need to done and get back without anything weird or random or embarrassing happening to me. I am sure I miss a lot, and I am trying to work on this, but ‘once bitten, twice shy’ as they say.

Animals give me great joy – and seeing them along the way to uni or at uni adds a little sparkle to my day. After a rather stressful practical test today, I was walking back to the bus stop, feeling rather worn and tired. There is a bit of an illness going around, and unluckily my body has given in to it. All of a sudden a little bird flitted gracefully right in front of my face, literally centimetres away – and alighted on a branch close by. It whistled a happy tune that I then attempted to return. There was no doubt that it was talking to me – chirruping a happy and encouraging little ‘hello’. It would have been unforgivably rude if I had just ignored it and walked on. After that I felt lighter inside, like I had just had a kind smile from a friend. Bless that small little soul.
