summer check in


I wish I could bottle all the happy that this gives me, this hummingbird dropping by for a little refreshment. We’ve waited all summer for just this moment. We hung this feeder out hoping to draw some of these beauties but our cats often frighten birds away from coming too close. My son and I sat in this spot in silent anticipation waiting- we heard the buzzing of the wings before we saw it - I’m not sure if I ever realized or noticed how loud their buzzing wings are. I wanted so badly to hold it for a moment and encourage it to catch its breath and rest, but that’s not its nature, and I can relate. But I’ve made a lot of efforts, intentional efforts, to slow down, do less and just be more, and it’s been just what I’ve needed. How is your summer going?
