Aubrey by yaamas Aubrey by yaamas
There once was a chickadee who was so tiny that he struggled to find food small enough to eat. He would often settle for the wee bit crumbs left by the other birds and forest creatures. All he ever wanted was a fresh whole berry and he felt even smaller when he would watch the other normal sized chickadees feast on juicy berries.

One day, a lovely yellow winged fairy landed on a branch just beside him. She said, "Hey, little fella! I've come across these little berries just beyond the wood. They are very sweet and you look like you need something to eat." The tiny chickadee fluttered with joy, not because of the juicy little berries but because of his new found friend...and Aubrey was her name.

Beautiful, reminds me of Cicely Mary Barker's work.
P.S- is christ's cross meant to be there for a reason?
