It is good to be alone at times, but when you know a storm is coming, there is safety in numbers. Especially, if those numbers are on your side, and you know the storm will be hitting them, too.
On a very blustery day, I was sitting on the front porch of my sister’s beautiful home. I was alone, I thought. I noticed a nearby tree with very thin limbs and some small objects on them. As I looked closer, I could see that the small objects were little birds clinging to the tree limbs for dear life!
When the winds came, the birds did not move. Their claws dug in deeper, and they stayed together. There was no arguing amidst the group; they were partners. They had resolve. They did not know if the storm might destroy everything around them. There must have been some innate voice that said, “Stay with your friends. They have your back.”
I love the beauty of tall trees, but on this particular day, I loved the beauty of the bird family sticking together even more.
