The Call of the Hummingbird

A hummingbird landed on my finger. Seriously. Walking down the street with my mom, I thought a large dragonfly passed by, so I pointed to be sure my mom saw it. It was a very LARGE dragonfly… a hummingbird landed on my finger.

I was (and still am) astounded. I always love it when wild creatures come to us humans, and this experience took the cake. Then she sat there for a while, looking around like she didn’t have a care in the world. Of course I could not feel her weight, but the memory fills my heart.

Hummingbird - Green violet- ear (colibri thalassinus)I’m not sure how this relates to being motivated in our work, I just wanted to share the story. It’s definitely a great example of how the most unexpected things happen when we reach out. I did not even have to ask–though I am a huge fan of hummingbirds so I like to think she sensed that.

What unexpected bluebirds* have you experienced lately? I’d love to hear!

Continued success!

  1. Really cool story. And what fun.

    I think we all have more stories than we share. We probably forget them, or we don’t notice them as they happen. I’m glad you noticed and that you didn’t forget.
