"Still Standing" or "Standing...Still". As I reflected on the inspiring creature that I discovered, I wondered how this seagull had lost it’s foot. Perhaps it was born this way or maybe it was a near escape from a predator. Whatever the cause, I was struck by the appearance of this beautiful creature and how it had somehow managed to regain its balance, standing on only one leg! I thought about those I have known who have also learned to regain balance in life after a loss of one kind or another - physical, relational, material, etc. What I have learned is that we are capable of becoming stronger, deeper as we move THROUGH our loss. I have come to see the value of the little things that we can celebrate, even in the midst of the rougher parts of the paths we travel! Hey, even one-legged seagulls can still soar!
