One of those days...

Today was just one of those days.  I let some things get to me that I shouldn't have and I can't stand it when I let unimportant things alter my mood.  Tonight, as I sat outside with my husband, watching the bluebirds swoop down to grab a bug for dinner I remembered that there are many things in my life that do matter.  Many more things which are worthy of my focus: mostly, the love of a good man with whom I can share my every achievement (no matter how large or small), my every worry (no matter how unfounded), my every silly thought (no matter how foolish) and all my love (no matter how intense and suffocating).  These are the things that are worthy of mention.  Well, those... and the fact that no matter how bad my day was... not for even one second did I have to think about eating a bug for my dinner! :)  Ah, life is good!

I did minimal gardeing tonight because of a few stops we had to make after work.  I watered my impatiens and knock out roses, changed the water in the birdbath and cleaned up some of the "pruning" the cicadas started on the crape myrtles.  It was just enough to slow my mind, clear my head, and remind me to appreciate our lovely corner of the world.

    I agree to that, and not having to eat bugs. :-)

    Gardening is wonderful therapy for body, mind and spirit.
