I have been going back in time to reread my own blog and thought I would share a few things with you. This post is from April 2009.
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 lens and head back outside. It seems this little one was testing out his wings and missed his Target.
Talk about a hopeless feeling. All this lil bird was doing was chirping and chirping away, I am sure for his momma, which I heard chirping 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"
Maybe they knew that "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.
When I got home, Lil Target and his momma and daddy were gone. As I unloaded my target bags, I starred out the window, reflected on where the bird was and here is what I got from this lil birdie....
It is really good to have a target in life 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...
