I wrote about these beautiful birds before. I like them so much that I made a new post for them.
There are two resident sandhill cranes at the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Canada; but many others fly in between late summer and the beginning of winter.
Sandhill cranes are up to 1.5m high with a 2m wingspan. The patch on their forehead is what makes them apart from other similar birds.
In this image you can take a glance of the chick behind. Colts or chicks stay with their parents until they are about 10 months old when they fly to join other cranes.
These last two years have been difficult because my health and life were at risk. On April 2013, I was diagnosed with three aneurysms and went through two complicated surgeries. This year I’ve been hospitalized as well due to some complications from last year’s issues.
After all this, I realize how fragile our life is and we should never waste a single minute to meditate about our spiritual existence and do our best to become a better person every day while we are here. We should always follow our path in life whatever our goals are, we should never give up, we must be positive and happy. We don’t know how much time we have left.
Let your loved ones know how much you care for them, send them a note or give them a call, always keep in touch.
Also never procrastinate and don’t leave things for the future. You never know if there will be a tomorrow. We have to live each day appreciating every single detail around us.
