The Spirit of the Season

December 23, 2011

Chickens do not celebrate holidays.  Yet, they are far from humbugs.  In fact, they are jovial.  Everyday they live life to the fullest. Everyday is Christmas for the chickens.

Chickens remind me that everyday is worth celebrating. 
Chickens are generous, sharing their gifts of eggs daily.
Chickens never need holidays as reasons for actions.  
Chicken families never dine alone and are generous with their findings.
New flock members are always included even though the first few weeks can be rocky.
They make it a point to talk with each other.
They have deep loving friendships.
The older birds remain a part of the flock and still live under the same roof.
They care for their young.
They fend for themselves if need be.
They seek out physical comfort especially when retiring for the night.
They have their moments but they always forgive one another and find harmony amongst themselves.
Their lives are about quality not quantity.
They never worry about their appearances. Have ever seen a chicken go through a terrible molt?
They seek and keep peace.

Christmas is about sharing gifts from the heart. Yet sometimes, they are the most difficult to give.  The chickens serve as a reminder to all that no matter what people’s situations, your actions can always make a difference in the lives of those around you.
