"The best laid plans of mice and men......" Was that Shakespeare?
One day I was missing my grandchildren and the next I was on an unexpected trip to see them and help out a little! (My daughter in law had surgery a couple of weeks ago and is needing a little assistance.) Since rocks are plentiful around here, I had my little grandson gather up 26 of the smoothest rocks he could find and he is painting the alphabet on them. (I saw this idea on Pinterest. There is a lady who paints beautiful rocks. Sorry I don't have her link.) His sister couldn't resist anything artsy, so she is helping out! He mentioned that the last time I was here (in early July) I spent "SO MUCH time with that sewing machine!" (I was sewing with "the girls".) So, I am helping him clean and organize his room and whatever else we find to do that is not associated with a sewing machine. We'll put up a shelf for his cars and we're cleaning out the clothes that he has outgrown. If the opportunity presents itself, I may drive to Hanford and check out the quilt shop there later. I will be here for two weeks! Before that, I need to do some "manly" stuff with that grandson! He just had his 5th birthday, so thank goodness it doesn't have to be TOO manly!
I was reminded by this little bird of how important it is in life to learn to adapt to the situations you find yourself in. He was in the LA airport, either by choice or mistake.
He was very brave as he walked around cleaning up the crumbs all those messy travelers had left behind. He had grown used to people and sensed that they wouldn't hurt him.
Just like this little bird, we learn to adapt or we don't survive! Flexibility makes our life so much easier.
Until next time........
