   The weather has been terrible with constant rain causing one storm after another, even the storm inside my soul that continues to grow. I sometimes sit in my backyard just to take in a relaxing breath, but today as I sit under the patio feeling bummed out as the sky is gloomy, dark and grey with the rain drizzling down lightly I noticed there is a yellow rose on the bush to my left that is freshly bloomed. My attention is completely on this rose and I notice how it accepted frail raindrops as if each drip were giving the flower a little bit more life. It dawns on me that this is my mothers favorite color rose which means joy, delight, welcome back and new beginnings. As I begin to feel and overflow of sorrow and heartbreak because next month will be fifteen years of her being gone something beautiful happens. A couple of small, brown hummingbirds grabs my attention as they seemed to dance with each other in front of the rosebush. Suddenly, they stop in mid air with their wings still flapping and for a second they seemed to be staring back at me, then off they flew. Stunned I leaned back in my chair and insted of crying I smile because these two female birds comforted me in my time of need and stole the sorrow that I felt at that moment. In the summer I love to sit and watch my daughter and three granddaughters play in the backyard and sometimes in my rosebushes. I often wish my mother were here to share these precious moments with me but realize that it is selfish. She was sick and it was her time to go, but until we meet again my heart will always ache from her abscence.
