I’ve always liked hummingbirds. At one point I thought if I ever got a tattoo, it would be of a hummingbird (although I soon realized that it would probably look like it was pointing at something… and depending on where you got the tattoo, that could be awkward).

Anyway, a friend gave me a card from the company Papyrus not too long ago, whose symbol is a hummingbird. I really liked the explanation on the back of the card, and I was reminded today when I saw it on my fridge how happy it makes me.

“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.”

Happy Friday, everyone!

    I also adore hummingbirds and coincidentally, it is one of my favorite Spanish words: Colibrí.
    Just a little something extra for you!!
