There is so much to be annoyed about, we remember the hurts so well. Hurts are not wild game that one goes a hunting. More like the unpredictable weather patterns. Some just come storming in. Wetting the plants, the porch, the window curtains. Snatching a bit of roof in rage. No one not even the meteorologist expected that. Well hurt is like that sometimes.

On the other side of the coin, there is the unexpected joys. Did i see that coming? Oh  but there is still goodness in the world. Like the drizzle cooling the parched earth. The wildflower pops up which no one ever planted. With its unique colour tones, petal count. stem lengths. And we pause in contemplative gratitude. And Sometimes thank you pops up in a smile not spoken.
