I think most people hear “stop and smell the flowers”. When I think of Great Grandmother Kilpatrick I think, stop and watch the birds. She loved birds. I remember sitting with her at her kitchen table and watching the birds come to her bird feeder. I enjoyed watching them because of her enjoyment. As I’ve gotten older I take that memory with me. I’m so lucky to have had her in my life. She lead by example and my daughters were loved so much by her. She will live on through us forever. Bird watching will never be the same but I will definitely stop and do it a little more, everyone should.
