Chasing the Birds

Brad and I witnessed the most magnificent thing yesterday. We were driving to the grocery store to buy some pie ingredients, when we saw all these shimmering dots dancing in the sky. We pulled over, and couldn’t believe our eyes! We were questioning what it was… Was it litter being kicked up in the wind so beautifully? Was it a million little bugs? We drove closer to get a better look, when we realized it was birds. People were stopping on the highway, and hopping out of their cars to watch these little birds perform in the sky. It was almost humorous how well they synchronized to our M83 music we had playing in our car. It was so inspiring to watch! The way their wings shimmered in the sunshine,  and how they followed one another so perfectly, making giant shapes up in the air.
Our typical Thanksgiving turned into an exciting afternoon of “Chasing the Birds”
