A Marvellous Story :: Uma História Maravilhosa

Sometimes it is too easy to forget that the world is full of amazing people: people who tell wonderful stories and who appreciate the small things of everyday life. People who are just the same as we are.

Yesterday one of my customers sent me a marvellous e-mail. She told me the story of how she met a northern fulmar during her night shifts at work. This bird used to fly next to her and he became a good friend of hers. I can only imagine the many hours working at night and the sharing of silence and stories between these two beings. I was deeply moved and also happy that in some little way the fulmar I made reminds her of her friend.

Ás vezes é demasiado fácil esquecer que o mundo está cheio de pessoas maravilhosas: pessoas que contam histórias fantásticas e que apreciam as pequenas coisas do dia a dia. Pessoas como quase todos nós.

Ontem um dos meus clientes enviou-me um e-mail maravilhoso. Contou-me a história de como conheceu um Fulmar durante os turnos nocturnos no trabalho dela. A ave costumava voar junto dela e ao fim de algum tempo tornaram-se bons amigos. Apenas consigo imaginar as muitas horas a trabalhar à noite e a partilha de histórias e de silêncio entre estes dois seres. Fiquei muito comovida e também feliz, porque de alguma forma, o fulmar que fiz lhe recorda o seu amigo.

  1. That is a beautiful story. Sometimes, the most random beings show up in our lives bearing beautiful messages and connections… Glad she took the time to share that with you and Thank you for sharing the story with others. :)
