Foxglove Moments

August 15, 2013


It was a problem: the squirrels were eating far more of the birdseed than the birds.

I researched online for “squirrel-resistant bird feeders,” consulted with neighbors, asked at the local feed store. Yes, there were ways to safeguard the birdseed from the pesky little critters and to make them go away. Hooray!

…And then I realized that I actually enjoy watching the squirrels more than the birds. The little acrobats have caused me to laugh out loud at their antics. Birdseed is a small price to pay for such enjoyment.

I suspect that, with many of my “problems,” were I to adjust my perspective on the situation, I would find there’s no longer a problem to be solved.
