Mama Told Me

Days Like This

Summer is waning!

The heat-filled, oppressive days are giving way to cooler hours.

But even if things are getting better, I remember Mama's message: when you think things are going well there will be "days like this."

That is so true, but we also have the hope of butterflies fluttering among the garden flowers; goldfinches munching on the zinnia seeds; hummingbirds hovering around the coreopsis.

Still, pain hovers over the weeds and promises to pounce.
