Tuesday Gratefuls: Pearl & Shannon Share

Gratitude has many faces. Some of the most recognizable have feathers, of course, but gratitude can at times rock a far subtler look as well.

For example, let’s say you work from home and you and your feathers share the casa’s workspace.

On your side of the shared workspace is the (also shared) large reflective rectangular device with the crispy keys and its various and sundry external attendants.

On your parrot’s side of the shared workspace is, well, everything else. To keep certain routine deposits from adhering to the workspace surface (to be scrubbed away later only with great effort), that side of the workspace is covered with a thick layer of soft paper towels.

While paper towels aren’t known for their flashy appearance, every time you look at them lying there, gratitude spontaneously arises.

Pearl and his mommy are each so grateful for paper towels, albeit for entirely different reasons!

As part of our New Year’s intentions, Pearl and his mommy have decided to share a weekly “gratefuls” list here each Tuesday.

Please join us if you like! 🙂

Pearl is grateful for....
  • The wonderful “shreddability” (a technical term) of paper towels.
  • His talent for creating a posh and cozy nest anytime, anywhere.
  • The large rectangular thing with the crispy keys – so reflective for checking that every feather is in place!
Shannon is grateful for...
  • Paper towels. No idea what this little flock would do without them!
  • Sharing a workspace each day with the cutest officemate in the world!
  • The many faces of gratitude.

  1. I have been told by my feathered stars that paper towels are particularly “shredalicious”. Have to admit I forgot BuddhaBird was on my head when I answered my apartment door the other day. Neighbor was a little startled at being greeted by a bird with a human under him but he recovered nicely.

    • Your feathers clearly have very sensitive and discerning palates! What a lucky neighbor you have to live so close to such fetching feathered beings….he probably was just temporarily overcome by “cuteness.” Glad to know he made a full recovery 😊
