"Life Lessons From Lovebirds"

While I was meandering through the pages of the book "Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers," this morning, I came across this story about Lovebirds. At the end of the story, the author, Vickie Lynne Agee, listed 10 life lessons we can learn from Lovebirds. 

1. If you spend too much time looking in the mirror, it's easy to lose your balance.
2. Always keep a pleasant look on your face, even if your cage needs cleaning.
3. If your mate wants to share your perch with you, move over.
4. The real treats in life usually come only after you've cracked a few hulls.
5. It takes two to snuggle.
6. Sometimes your mate can see mites you didn't even know you had.
7. Singing draws more affection than squawking.
8. It is only when your feathers get ruffled that your true colors really show.
9. Too many toys can be distracting.
10. When you have love in your heart, everyone around you will find joy in your presence.
