Remember this guy? If not, you can see his introductory post here. You’ll be glad to know he’s doing fine… even testing his wings a little… right, Anita?
Want to know something else about him? How about… he now thinks he owns the home in which he resides. This might not be a big problem, except its our home! “Mi culinaria es su casa!”
It’s hard to imagine that just a few days ago this young whippersnapper seemed so grateful to have been saved from the ground (where Pot Pie Possum dwells). He with much gratitude received his meals from our hands… nested in his shoe box.
But now… ha! He becomes angry when his crickets and worms aren’t there at the first sign of hunger. He chirps to high heaven demanding attention and service. He flies all over leaving special surprises wherever he lands. Not only this… he sits and calls his mother, somehow convincing her to peck holes in the screen on the back porch!
Hmmm… (as Karin’s been known to say)! I wonder if there’s a little of me in that there bird? I must confess I find myself guilty of our guest’s changed attitude. I do the same thing.
Here’s some defining test questions… do you treat your spouse as well today as when you were first dating? Do your children receive that same adorning attention that they did in the delivery room? Do those lifelong friends still believe they can count on you whenever need be?
We only have one lifetime to show our appreciation for others… and we don’t know or control the length of that lifetime. …gotta run, someone’s screeching!
