wings and things

A brand new thing

on December 29, 2011

There is nothing like a brand new thing. It beats the hell out of second-hand.

Godfrey came to us as a 2-year-old (in the poultry world, this is second-hand and, yes, I’m beginning to realise why Godfrey was second-handed to us!)

Our other birds came to us as babies – brand new – like freshly minted sovereigns.

Now that Husband is in a brand new hospital, under the care of a brand new specialist, and being cared for by brand new nurses (new to us I mean) things are looking up. And I’ve suddenly realised that, instead of dreading what might be coming, I/we should be embracing it as a brand new experience.

But still we wait – all of us – for what this brand new experience might entail.

  1. I’ll bet if you look closely Julie, you’ll see your new wings sprouting. They won’t be massive and protective like the ones you lost, but sturdy and beautiful. And I bet given a little time and some practice facing into the wind – you’ll feel your feet starting to lift off the ground.

  2. Hugs and wishes for the best. I guess we all molt, don’t we?
