The story is told of a woman who bought a parrot to keep her company, but she returned it the next day.“This bird doesn't talk,” she told the owner.
”Does he have a mirror in his cage?”he asked. “Parrots love mirrors. They see their reflection and start conversation
The woman bought a mirror and left. The next day she returned; the bird still wasn't talking.
"How about a ladder? Parrots love ladders. The happy parrot is a talkative parrot
The woman bought a ladder and left. But the next day, she was back.
“Does your parrot have a swing? No? Well, that’s the problem. Once he starts swinging, he’ll talk up a storm
The woman reluctantly bought a swing and left.
When she walked into the store the next day, her countenance had changed.
“The parrot died,” she said.
The pet store owner was shocked.
“I’m so sorry. Tell me, did he ever say anything?” he asked.
“Yes, right before it died,” the woman replied.
“In a weak voice, it asked me, ‘Don’t they sell any food at that pet store?’"
Sometimes we forget what’s really important in life. We get so caught up in things that are good while neglecting the things that are truly necessary.
Take a moment to do a “priority check”, and strive for what is most important today.
