Silly title and could probably lead to a million different topics, but I am going to keep it short and simple (well, at least try!)
I was headed out the door yesterday, for probably the thousandth time and coincidentally, as the title infers, was headed to Target, when I was stopped dead in my tracks. I had to quietly back up, grab my camera, change the lense and head back outside.
Talk about a hopeless feeling. All lil bird was doing was chirpping and chirping away, I am sure for his momma, which I heard chirpping back. I looked up, and there, on the highest peek of our next door neighbors house were Target's momma and daddy. (I named this lil birdie Target)
another hopeless moment, where I really needed to have either Ace Ventura or Bird Whisperer" skills to say "He is right here, OVERRR HEEEREEE...just look down"
another very hopeless moment.
Maybe they knew that lil bird, I mean "Target" was right there and they were just waiting for me to move from the area so that he could keep going, or keep trying.
so I did. and went to Target.
and when I got home, Lil birdie and his momma and daddy were gone.
So, as I unloaded my target bags, which were empty just a day ago, I starred out the window, reflected on it and here is what I got from this lil birdie....
it is really good to have a Target in life (& one that is right down the street from you) and to remember that we are not always going to get to our intended destination just because we want to. Sometimes our wings are not strong enough or simply, it is not our time to fly....BUT it does not mean to give up... I believe that as long as you stay focused, do the right thing, do your best and keep trying, well then you are hitting the "Bull's Eye", which does not have to be necessarily right in the center of the Target. Just remember that way up above, at the highest point, there is someone watching over us, guiding us and reminding us to keep going...
thank you lil Target birdie
