My least favorite month

August has always been my least favorite month. With oppressive heat, back to school, and no football yet, August has very little appeal.

Until now.

This summer we added four hummingbird feeders to our backyard, and August is their “get fat month” prior to heading to South America. Crowding the feeders, these amazing creatures bring a smile and a giggle every time they flit in. They are tiny miracles to me, flying in super fast and landing perfectly on the feeders where they drink their fill.

August may only be halfway over, but these little miracles are helping me get through.
