Not Enough Bluebirds

Just yesterday, a friend asked me if I had a painting of Bluebirds.  She recently lost her Mom and she told me she loved Bluebirds.  She was very close to her Mom and I couldn't wait to show her the painting I had in a local gallery.  When I got home, I had a message waiting from a little gallery in Swansboro about a watercolor painting that sold.  The gallery owner's exact words were...I have bad news for you...your painting of the Bluebirds sold!  How strange that she used those words and also that this was what I wanted to show my friend!  You just wonder sometimes how things happen.  I think she used those words because artist's often suffer a loss when a painting is sold.  But, it made me think of the many people in our lives that we lose that are so dear to us.  We must go on to paint more Bluebirds.
