On the day I received “Nancy’s Magic Bird” we had been on I-95 and were surprised to see a beautiful American Bald Eagle fly across the road just in front of us. Could this drawing be responsible for our sighting of the beautiful Bald Eagle?

Later that same week, while sitting on my deck in the evening watching the birds at the bird feeder, there was a loud rustling in the trees. I was startled to see an owl perched in the tree . . . Nancy’s magic again? I think it must have been.

Thank you Nancy, for sending your magic my way. Thank you Jeanne, for sharing.


I first met Margaret at a Toastmaster’s meeting when she regaled me (and everybody else) with one of her speeches. We became fast friends, the kind of friends who can see each other once or twice a year and still feel close, picking up right where we left off the last time we saw each other. Once a realtor – our realtor, to be more specific – she’s now retired and enjoying her adorable grandsons, sharing the most entertaining little ditties about them on Facebook. Go on, click the link and become friends with her so you can enjoy her day brighteners, too.


Nancy is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
