The letter "H" is for HURT little sparrow. When I go into the back yard, the birds all fly off from the feeders. This day, they all flew away, but this one. As I got closer, I realized he was HURT. He had a large abscess on his face and one wing looked damaged. He let me get closed enough to pick him up and didn't fight me. I have him some water, and put him back in the feeder. The next day, he tried to fly, and made it to the top of the cover over the BBQ.
He stayed on that cover most of the day. I would check in on him from time to time. Then later that afternoon, he made the flight to the top of the fence. I was cheering him on, saying "You can do it little bird, fly HOME to mommy".
Everyone experiences HURTS, and the best thing we can do, is push through the HURT, and never give up HOPE. Maybe we need just a little encouragement like I gave the little bird to FLY AWAY!
