This is one of my favorite memes.
Last year, I wrote about The Bird Feeder.
I loved it, but spent a lot of time agonizing over the squirrels. They wouldn’t stay off the feeder and wound up destroying one of them.
Fast forward to today, I feed the squirrels.
I pour the feed right on the ground. Didn’t realize they make a feed for squirrels and birds to share. I found it at the local hardware store. My daughter laughs at me for doing this.
At first, she saw it as defeat. I’d given up on having a pretty feeder and the squirrels won, but I don’t see it as that. I see it as making a difference in their lives. If they come into my yard, they’ll be fed without a fight.
I don’t dump food out everyday, but this is the year of making a difference in community. Last year prepared me for this year.
I added to the meme.
I didn’t spend a lot of time on this meme to make a difference in what it says.
Last year was preparation. This year is to make a difference. It seems that begins in my own front yard.
