I went to my bedroom to get socks because the weather here had turned obscenely cold with a harsh rain coming down. (I hope my newly-planted vegetable plants don’t mind.)
Then I saw, to my complete joy, a hummingbird in the bushes outside my window. She was gently hovering around the delicate pink flowers that my mother had planted in front of the house and that had climbed up to the top of the window.
She reminded me of the song, “Hummingbird”, by Seals and Crofts.
In this song, they talk about all the Sacred Beings that God sends to us to educate us. They are so precious and are only here for a very short time, then they are gone. We don’t appreciate them while they are here, and when they are gone, it is too late.
