PostSubject: In praise of the unknown angels   Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:31 pm

There are some people out there doing wonderful acts of kindness to animals, that never get recognition. I heard a heart-warming account today, which I would like to share with you.

A friend of mine went to Coimbra (our district capital) for the day with her family. At the restaurant, while two of the party went to wash their hands, two pigeons swooped down and tried to eat out of their plates. That's too funny My friend had to keep them off the food. Then her mother returned, looked at the pigeon, and grabbed it. He was string-bound, and they removed all the string before letting him go.
The waiter giggled in cumplicity, and said that string injuries were very common around there, and the vending ladies at the nearby market were always removing strings from pigeons.

God bless those ladies, and all the others who are kind and gentle to all creatures and crave no recognition or thanks. That's my definition of nobility!
cheers Thank You Thank You Thrilled

Another anonymous angel:

A young driver stopped his car in the middle of the road near the park, much to the impatience of the others behind him. The reason... there were two pigeons crossing the street, taking their time! Then one of them decided to forage around right there!! Serious EEK!!

The driver was laughing, shrugging his shoulders and looking at the pigeons, and only took off after they moved on.
God bless that young man and always keep him safe on the road!
I wish there were more drivers like him! Star quality Way To Go Pigeon angel

Thank you for sharing this story, Teresa. Circle of Love

I, too, wish there were more drivers like him.
Perhaps there are. And if so, hopefully some day we will come across them. Fingers crossed

Those are nice stories.
One day while driving along in my job, I came up to a construction area where they were doing work on the roadway on which I was traveling. What looked like the guy in charge had stopped all the cars from traveling in either direction, which was really not all that uncommon when a crew was doing road repairs. What was uncommon however, was the amount of time that they had us stopped there, waiting to be let go. I have a schedule to keep, and I was getting a bit annoyed at sitting there for so long. There were several cars in front of me, and I couldn't see what the hold up was. The man stood there in the middle of the road, refusing to let anyone go, and people were getting annoyed, when finally, the reason for the hold up became clear. As we all sat there in our cars, something finally came into view. Walking down the center of the road, and apparently in no particular hurry, appeared a Momma duck, with a long line of ducklings close behind. The road crew stood there smiling, as the little group marched along down the road, and finally crossed it and reached the sidewalk, where they could now continue on safely. Most of the people in the cars started smiling and laughing by this time, and waved to the road crew and gave them a thumbs up as they passed them, now allowed to go on their way. I just thought it was great to see these big burly men, standing in the road with big smiles on their faces, protecting this adorable family of ducks, as they crossed this major roadway safely. You just never know. I was then actually glad that I had happened along just at that time, because I wouldn't have wanted to have missed the site. All of a sudden it didn't really matter that I would be late for my next patient. It was well worth it.

What a wonderful 'anonymous angel' story to add to the collection, Jay. And one that puts a little tear in the eyes.

Thanks for sharing it with us. Smile
