As I took these shots, I realized the life of a hummingbird is free of time constraints, celebrating the everyday, and simply enjoying life at that very moment. I had one of those "aw ha moments" Oprah's always talking about. I need to start living like a hummingbird. Live in the moment, slow down and enjoy the simple things in my life.
Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time,
carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration.
Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover
and savor each moment as it passes;
embrace all that life has to offer
and to celebrate the joy of every day.
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.
~PapyrusNo wonder my dad enjoyed watching these Awwwh-Mazing little flying beauties! I made a mental note to myself: "Live like a Hummingbird."
