Feed The Birds

Tuppence a bag…….

I was waiting at the bus stop in -18C weather when this older lady came with z bag full of bread scraps and began throwing them out to the many pigeons that are always clustered there in the sun. As she fed them, I found myself singing this song from “Mary Poppins”. It stayed in my head all afternoon.

In her own small way she “showed them she cared”, and I’m sure they were thankful in their little bird hearts. I know her thoughtful act warmed mine.
