A Feather

Peoria, Arizona

Sometimes you just have those days where you don't even know you are in a bad mood until you realize that everyone is kind just saying things that irk you. That is me, that is today. I woke up feeling fine, but then I was talking to some people and...oof I noticed I was getting angry and I just needed to stop. So I told my mom what was going on, what these people were doing to irk me, and of course she listened. Then I come back out to the kitchen to get some water and my mom says to me, "I got you a surprise" I look down on the kitchen table, and it was a pigeon feather. (if you don't know, I really love pigeons, I get very excited when I see them) I thought that was the sweetest thing and it is such a pretty-looking feather too! Look at that! It is such a small little gesture, but it means so much. And the fact that she just so happened to find a feather on the ground that was just perfect. It is the little things that make life feel a lot better and being angry is just a waste of time.

I am sorry, it happens and there is not a lot we can do, there are days like that. My husband is like you today. I decided not to talk to him and do my things, I am tired of grumpy people.

It's okay to have a bad every now and then, it makes the small gestures meaningful.

Yes indeed , a smiling face is much better than a frowning face. Very thoughtful of your mother to gift you the feather.
