Adjust the Sails

Bertha Calloway, the founder of the Great Plains Black Museum said that "We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails."
I've heard this said in many ways, but none better than the way Bertha put it. To me it means more than simply go with the flow, it means that you can't control life, but you can control how you react to life's storms.
I could not agree more.
We had fun in Helena today but it was much warmer than we were lead to believe by the weatherman. The sun was out in full force and by afternoon, it was warm as a toaster on the concrete. I'm thankful Jilda had some yoga blankets in her car that we could hang from the west side of the tent and knock the sun off for the last hour of the set.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I hope all you mother's have a blessed day.
