I loved your list, Springinthemeadow. Everyone should be so wise as to make a gratitude list to count their blessings.<br />
Number 12 made me smile so much. I once had a bird that I so hoped would straighten up-- a cockatoo that was a rescue bird that I dearly loved but who had real problems from the treatment he got in the past before I tried to help him. Alas, I never had experience with a neurotic cockatoo before, and he was not straightening up at all. But through an odd synchronicity I came upon a very knowledgeable woman who had an aviary that was home to many rescue birds who were happy and healthy and she did know how to help this lovely cockatoo. She took him under her wing (I couldn't resist the pun!) and he is thriving! And she insisted on giving me a bengal cat in trade who has turned out to be a wonderful companion to me. All's well that ends well!<br />

May your life be filled with blessings.
