A bird

A lovely thing happened.  I was practicing the piano to play for the nursing home residents.  The first piece I chose was Gabriels’ Oboe.  As soon as I started playing, a bird outside nearby began to sing: “Pretty, pretty…” when I stopped playing she stopped singing.  It was one of those moments that just make you smile from your heart!

  1. I worked in a nursing home for years and the residents so looked forward to when someone came in to entertain them. We had a pianist, a woman who played the accordian! lol She sang as well….we also had a husband and wife who came and sang hymns and a 3 piece bluegrass/southern gospel group that came on a regular basis. The staff enjoyed it as well. I’m sure you are a blessing to them. Sounds like it was a cardinal….the males say “pretty, pretty, pretty bird” Did you get a chance to see it?
