In Portuguese, apparently the translation of hummingbird is 'flower kisser'...I like that. Years ago when we lived on an acreage a hummingbird used to visit our house regularly, staring through my picture window. I often wondered if he saw the little hummingbird sculpture hanging inside. So number nineteen of the 52 WEEKS PROJECT is complete! Getting closer to the halfway mark.
Even though they are the smallest known bird, Hummingbird inspires the impossible. They can fly in any direction, back and forth, sideways, and even upside down, teaching us that magic comes in all shapes and sizes. As a totem animal, they share that we have to savor the present moment and the sweetness of life.
Yesterday I spent a wonderful Mothers' Day with my family...I read while they prepared delicious meals for me and went for a lovely walk with my husband. We all chatted and laughed together...a perfect day, really.
Thankfully my daughter begins work today so I will stop slacking off and get back to my work. So much to do...so excited to do it...
