<span style="font-size:small;"><i>From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's "just a bird" or, "that's a lot of money for just a bird."<br>
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a bird."<br><br>
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a bird."<br><br>
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a bird" but I did not once feel slighted.<br><br>
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a bird" and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a bird" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.<br><br>
If you too, think it's, "just a bird," Then you will probably understand phases like<br><br>
"just a friend, "<br><br>
"just a sunrise, "<br><br>
or "just a promise."<br><br>
"just a bird" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure unbridled joy.<br><br>
"just a bird", brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.<br><br>
Because of "just a bird", I will rise early, and look longingly to the future.<br><br>
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a bird" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment..<br><br>
"just a bird" brings out what's good in me, and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.<br><br>
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a bird", but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human."<br><br>
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a bird." just smile, because they....<br><br>

I never used to have any particular care about birds until i worked with them. I definitely look at them in a diff way now. I appreciate their intelligence and company. They are quite amazing.

Thanks for this. I'm glad to say I appreciate birds, take sparrows, they rock and so nimble too, bland in color some may say but I love 'em but color don't bother me and besides they more than makeup for it in character!!..<br><br>
Ps, timing of this is great, was mentioning to a friend, the thought of how cool bird tables are, only today.. Yay for bird lovers, especially of the little bird appreciation society. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
