There are many reasons why I love my husband, Tim Watson. Right up at the top of the list is his gentle, caring nature. He might look like a tough, motorcycle-riding, scruffy-bearded Englishman on the outside. But, get to know him, and you will soon see he's like an M&M - hard outer shell with a sweet, soft center.
Yesterday was a perfect example of this. Riding his motorcycle, he stopped at a light in a major intersection - looking down he spotted a tiny baby sparrow flopping around in the road. It was surely going to die out there if Tim didn't do something about it. So, he stopped his motorcycle - risking his own life, got off his bike & proceeded to direct traffic around the baby bird until he was able to pick it up, stuff it in his leather jacket pocket, and ride home with it.
I received an email at work yesterday afternoon asking if I'd pick up some meal worms on my way home. Yep, never a dull moment in our marriage, I tell ya'!
We are now nursing the sweet little thing back to health - feeding it regularly, keeping it warm - it is chirping away in its little 'nest' we made for it on the kitchen counter as I type this. One thing's for sure - I can never claim to have a boring life!!...
