In the new year we look to resolutions, goals, and milestones to guide our progress. What are you working on? What do you want to achieve? How far have you come? These are great ideas to reflect upon at this time of year.
More than that, I wanted to recognize YOU. You are the dedicated parrot owner, parrot mom/dad, parrot caregiver, and parrot slave. You have put in countless hours cleaning cages, scrubbing perches, making toys, chopping vegetables, wiping tears and laughing belly laughs. You are the incredible person who shares their home with these creatures. You have had good days, and bad days, and desperate days.
Most importantly, none of this progress, none of these successes, would be possible without you. YOU are the key. You are amazing! You are committed! You have done incredible things. This bird thanks you. This community wouldn’t be the same without you. This is about YOU. Recognize the greatness you provide to the parrot community. We wouldn’t be here without you.
In the new year, I wish for happiness. I wish for peace. I wish for warm hearts. I wish for communication. I wish for understanding. I wish for more time making connections and less time making divisions. For you, for us, for our birds, and for our community. You are what makes this special. You are what makes this work. With you, anything is possible!
