Miracle Moments

We certainly have been having some lovely weather. A bit hot, then a few cools days. A bit of wind, then gentle breezes. Lovely.

As I was outside sitting on the deck just allowing myself to “be” for a few moments before jumping in to the next task, I found myself just enjoying the flowers in the yard.

Last year, I stumbled upon a bright orange Coneflower called “Fiesta”. It lives up to its name and hosts a party every day for bees and butterflies. This year, I stumbled upon a vibrant orange Calla Lilly and a deep burgundy Calla Lilly. I don’t remember their names, yet they were spectacular this spring. As I was noticing this area of the garden, I noticed some bright orange among the green of the Calla Lilly.

Was it blooming again?!

Often spring plants are “forced” to bloom early so they look good for sale. This Calla Lilly had displayed some great orange and yellow blooms (all on the same plant). I decided I’d go look and see if it were true and if there indeed were new blooms. (I was certainly hoping!)

As I got close, all of a sudden I heard a whirring sound and something flew out of the plant and startled me. It was a hummingbird!! Beautiful blue hummingbird! I couldn’t really tell if it was drinking from the Calla Lilly or if it was enjoying the Fiesta Coneflower.

It hovered nearby for just a moment. I backed away, saddened that I had interrupted it’s meal. It darted nearby and hovered a moment and looked at me before it zipped away. What a delightful moment!

I’m so very, very glad that I followed my heart’s desire to see the flowers up close. Had I followed that other part of me that realized it had work to do, I’d have missed that “Miracle Moment” with the hummingbird.

Metaphysically, hummingbirds represent doing the impossible – they fly backwards!

I have lots of things going on in my world that I’d like to accomplish, yet at times, I feel like I don’t know enough tech stuff or have enough energy. I had just been thinking about my heart’s desires to move forward in a couple of new areas and had been entertaining thoughts of doubt.

Little Hummingbird met me to bring me the message that “All things are possible.” I don’t have to do them all, I know people who know stuff . . . The help I require will appear when I need it – unexpectedly perhaps!

All this to say, if you get a nudge to do something, you might want to follow that. Miracle Moments happen when we follow those nudges!
