June 10, 2022!

So many times I walked in the bird building with lack of strength and did something or other, never enough and not at the level used to do. It breaks my heart that volunteers just either don’t show up, change time they can come when they can, mostly to feed the birds in the evening or on a weekend here and there. Some come out for selfish reasons as to play with birds.

This leaves me to do the majority of the work such as clean crates, mop floors and other stuff needing to be done.

Today was power washing walls in building. Got half done, hopefully I will get the rest done sometime next week after my Tuesday regiment of treatment.

The lack of volunteers that can drill holes and cut wood is also an issue since it’s hard to make toys without some wood.

Non the less I keep promising the birds to do all I can to keep them happy and thriving as I have the last 15 years no matter how ill I’ve been. Well, God keeps giving me strength and keep going like a toy with a Duracell battery, LOL.

It’s June, this morning I was determined to keep a promise I kept the birds each year. “Fresh cut tree branches” because they are better than man made bird toys and I can only spoil them with these during the summer months. So I went out at 8am and cut a whole bunch down. With tears in my eyes, a grateful heart and a smile in my face knowing the birds would be happy to chew the branches down; I lifted a prayer up to the Lord and thanked Him.

I am so very blessed!

Well most of the birds got branches, a few of the cages need some and hopefully tomorrow or the next day I can cut more. 98% of the birds are happily chewing up branches and this bring happiness to my heart!

The Lord is my healer and will continue to heal me for their sake. Amen!


We’re measuring success!

With the help of avian experts we reached out to for advice to help us find a reputable successor organization. Without any doubt or delay, we proudly announce that a reputable organization to commit our bird’s future and their long lived life care and protection has been established. Our succession organization value’s, mission and bird care treatment for our sanctuary birds hold the best interest of them.

Under My Wing has been in existence for 15 years and has placed a plan of succession years ago. Our primary plan was for our board members to continue to run the sanctuary. Over the years as we all age, lost some board members due to illness or need for a nursing home.

On December 2021 I suffered a Lung Embolism and began the New Year with the diagnosis and treatments for the (C) word which I prefer calling it “Celebration of life with infusion regiments of Cocktails Cheer.

I have had a vigorous attitude filling me with a healthy attitude, an even a greater determination than ever in my life with an unstoppable spirit to live to 90 and continue to care for the sanctuary birds and I refused fear to grip my heart for my life. I believe this is just another plateau to reach, one that truly shows what life looks like when living matters the most. My therapy regiments is nothing more than the mixture of Cocktails I receive bringing me health and a newness of life to accomplish more.

When diagnosed, my tumors were in advanced stage. The goal was to control and shrink the tumors, relieve pain and prevent the condition from metastasizing in any new area. I am ecstatic to report that regiments of the mixture of Cocktails I receive are working. My recent tests show one small tumor is completely gone and the larger tumor has decreased in size. I am continuing to receive treatments and look forward to my next report showing total remission.

My life will never be the same; it’s renewed, with newer hope and clearer visions as the plans for our sanctuary bird’s future is secured.

We appreciate your help and patience as we devote this time to the continual care of the birds being our top priority. Simultaneously preparing all necessary legalities, logistic planning, manpower and good old fashion time to the health and safety of the bird’s transition to their new home when we need to.

Please continue to support our needs as we continue posting our updates.

Thank you!

Our work in saving birds lives continues!
