Mrs Meier worries all the time. Worries about all and everything and mostly without any reason. But one morning there is one: Mrs Meier finds a young blackbird that has fallen from its nest. She picks it up, feeds it and brings it up with great patience. Finally, when the little blackbird is fledged, she even starts thinking about how to teach him fly. Mrs Meier climbs the tree in her garden and starts her adventurous lessons.
A delightful story about love and care which relieves people from their fears and confiments.
