“To some, sighting a hummingbird signals that challenging times are over and healing can begin. To others, these tiny fliers are an inspiring sign of hope and good luck.” – Emily Hannemann
I’ve grown to perceive things as signs, particularly when I’m experiencing times of doubt, worry, and uncertainty. Birds have especially been a significant “sign” for me, and with what I’ve experienced over the past few weeks, I was desperately hoping for a sign that things may turn around – and then – a hummingbird visited our yard – the first one of the year.
I’ve seen all over local bird groups that l’m a part of about their many hummingbird visitors for months, but not one had visited our yard. How fitting that one shows up right when I’m in the depths of some utterly low of lows?
I’m feeling so grateful for its presence. Here’s to leaning into what they supposedly symbolize, such as the hope that it’s time for healing to begin.
