I think this speaks for itself. It made me cry. Friendships are so important. In my family's past, we have had many friendships with many people and many creatures. It has been our gift. One such little one was a Starling - a bird named Mavis. She came to us after a storm. She was a large pink tube, and we fed her cat food and taught her to fly. She eventually returned to the wild. But for months she would come flying out of the trees to our heads and our hearts. It was truly memorable.
