The Gift of a Hummingbird's Love.

"Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and to savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday. 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.”  ~ Papyrus
A hummingbird came to see me today, and for the purposes of sharing it's love this evening ~ and maybe perhaps a little sweet tea.

I could hear the familiar buzz of it's approach, as the air softened just long enough for this tiny creature to pass.

When I was a little girl, my teacher told me that a hummingbird blesses a home with every 'flap' of its wings...

And, did you know if you extend your hand without expectation ~ the hummingbird will always come closer to say his "hello."

Oh, and I am so very grateful for this most beautiful night...and more so for the gift of a hummingbird's love.
