There are hummingbirds in my garden. My 33 month old grandson Jacob helped me make the sugar water and we hung up some feeders on Tuesday. Today I sat outside on a bench and watched the hummingbirds. G-d gives us ALS and he gives us grandchildren and hummingbirds. I try to keep this in perspective when we are having hard days. There is still beauty in the world and sometimes it is the small things that can still give us joy. A good day is a day when my PALS has a good day. A good moment is when I see a hummingbird or when Jacob says "I love you Nana" or when my PALS has an easy time swallowing. We all need to look for those good moments and take a minute to be thankful for all the good things. We are all so caught up with ALS that sometimes we forget about the hummingbirds.
