While I will readily admit to having laid an egg, and a prizewinner at that, many a time in my life, I have neither done so in physiological terms nor, as the bird in today’s illustration appears to have done, in the supernatural way that allows said egg to levitate spontaneously.
On the other hand (or wing), I have managed to score a few modest accomplishments of my own, which, while hardly supernatural, at least impressed the heck out of me. And I rarely, in these cases, fail to make the bragging announcement.
The most remarkable thing about all of this is not that I have ever accomplished anything at all (let alone worthy of note)–though this is indeed impressive enough–it’s that I may have once or twice done something moderately grand and not felt compelled to trumpet self-aggrandisement.
Or did I just cancel out that small virtue by saying so? It’s just so hard to be humble.
“oh lord it’s hard to be humble, when you’re perfect in every way ay”
Everybody sing along!!!
I agree totally with annerose here 😉
😉 😉 😉
Now you’ve made me cackle. 😀
Cracked me up
love this! It is good to be proud of ones self 🙂
If we don’t do it, who will?!
Well done! That bird looks so proud!
I’m glad her pride shines through. 🙂
Beautiful – I could never do this! Bravo, Kathryn. You have a lot of talent. – Shanna 🙂
Your immense talents are more than impressive, Shanna–you do much that I could never do. Guess we can enjoy having a mutual admiration society! 😀
Thank you, Kathryn! I am blushing. You are too generous in your words! Enjoy your Sunday.
Thank you, darling! 😀
hehe you’re welcome! 😛
I love your image of the bird, especially in colour. Well done.
So pleased you enjoyed it!
Well done, Kathryn, and your photo is both precious and adorable. You are one talented soul! ♥
You are so sweet! Thanks.
♥ this! (I struggle with this ‘issue’ all the time … I was just saying to mom today: why do I have this mentality of “beggars mustn’t be choosers”?) In the context of your joyous songbird, humility certainly doesn’t mean not being proud of our accomplishments. The virtue comes in appreciating others accomplishments, too, and loud and clear I do so appreciate yours, Kathryn! XO
Likewise, my dear, likewise!
Your art is wonderful, Kathryn!
Many thanks, my friend!
