I walked out my door this early am to walk my sweet dog scruffy and I heard the sound of a hummingbird off to my right. That strong vibrational hum that is music to my ears. They are so beautiful and each one unique in size and color.
Their name comes from the fact that they create a humming sound when they fly. Hummingbirds can fly in any direction — forward, backward, up, down, side-to-side and even upside down — and they do so by flapping their wings at an incredible rate of between 60-200 times per second. So as I turned to my right in the direction of the sound, this beautiful bird floated in front of my face, stopping mid air to make eye contact with me as if to say to me “good morning” so I said well good morning back to you. It flew away in a flash and settled into a tree above me, resting.
Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation. Today celebrate your life and every connection you have made past, present and future and remember to share and laugh along the way. Life is precious.
Love and Light,
