Grandmama’s daffodils keep coming back each spring saying, “Change might be good, but it sure is nice to be able to depend on constants.”

I know some things have to change sooner or later, but I just don’t see the point in changing things that work just fine, maybe even “better than fine.”

What is my point?

Am I telling you that you should go plant daffodils? No, not unless you just like daffodils.   How about a Mason jar of ice water? No, but I will tell you that there is not many things that are better than ice water or sweet tea out of a Mason jar.

What I’m trying to say is that we should all appreciate the constants we have in our lives - the things, the people, the places… For goodness sakes – our dogs, if we are dog people.  I know my dogs are going to open the door and meet me in the driveway before I have the chance to even stop the car.

I guess the other thing is that we need to try to be constants to some people, in particular our children.

If I feel like I need a little change, I might consider planting a few tulips.  However, you can count the daffodils staying put.
