My Inner Magpie

Like the great Magpie I have a tendency to talk too much, squawk when unnecessary and search high and low for shiny things! In the hopes of not making myself seem identical to the Magpie.... you either love me or not so much!

They spend hours a day searching for trinkets to fill their nests and to the onlooker it seems they have collected junk and garbage. We each have our own definition of what sparkles and makes us tick, so here's a toast to the Magpies for still scavenging even though to some it is not a worthwhile endeavor, and here's to us respecting each others decisions and recognizing that we each have our own sparkle that we have a right to claim.

My Inner Magpie needs to thank those that are making it possible for me to claim my sparkle and graduate...

Mum, Dad, Jeff, my loyal friends (who have red hair:) , my fellow classmates who rock and answer my sometimes squawking phone calls! My instructors and co workers for their words of wisdom and support and encouragement, my blogging friends who I love from afar, my kids for smiling and collecting their own sparkle! The government of Canada for their programs and grants for single mums, my friends at church for their love, my Bishop and visiting teacher :)

Thank you to everyone who has been so gracious with your kind words, compliments and prayers, it means the world to me and is truly helping me accomplish my goal of surviving, healing and learning.

Love MagPie

Well, I don't really like magpies, but I love you. The big dissimilarity is that magpies are mean to other birds, and you are always kind.

On the plus side, magpies are one of the most intelligent of all birds. Good luck, keep squawking away, and never lose your shine!
