Want to Give Something Special?
Once there was a small bird who wanted to give something special.
So she went to the eagles for advice on what she could do.
“Be the best bird you can be,” they said.
That seemed good. And she wanted more. So she went to the hummingbirds for advice.
“Fly with courage,” they said.
That also seemed wise. And she wanted more. So she went to the doves for advice.
“Make peace your partner in all you do,” they said.
That was nice, the bird thought. And she really wanted an idea for something special she could give.
So she flew to a grove of ancient trees known for their wisdom.
She landed on a branch and said, ” I want to give something special. What might it be?”
For a moment, the trees moved with the wind. Then the wind paused and the trees spoke.
“You are a memory for all you know.
So give the kind of memory you would want them to have.
Since all life is connected, your good memory will inspire them to be a good memory for others.
Thus it will continue forever.
And that will make your gift profoundly special.”
