Im a few days late with this post. I had something incredible happen last friday, the day after my birthday. I was sitting on the stairs outside my home like I frequently do. I was enjoying cooler air since it was so hot inside. After a few minutes I suddenly hear a buzzing sound that sounded very close to me. At first I thought it was one of those june bugs that seem to come out in the summer. But as the sound continued I noticed it wasn't so much a buzzing sound as it was a fluttering sound. I stood up to see a humming bird just flying in place looking right at me. Just flying there, face to face with me. I had my camera in hand and tried to take a picture but I was caught so off guard and stunned that I couldn't pull myself together fast enough to take a photo. This sweet little bird stayed hovering there about 3 feet in front of my face for a good 5-7 seconds. She zig zagged a couple times each time getting even closer to me. It was amazing. She was so close that I could have reached out and touched her. Im still stunned this little sweetheart and eye locked eyes for such a long time. She defiantly made a lasting impression on me.
Also a few weeks ago the Lost For Words Card Line was asking for new submissions for their 2013 calendar. I wanted to submit a quote but had no idea which one. Its not like Im full of philosophical and insightful quotes. I had to think long and hard and come from the heart with a quote that would make both me and Genesis proud. And a quote that would inspire and help other BLMs. That's a lot of pressure. So I thought long and hard and actually came up with something. I was sure there were a bunch of BLMs submitting quotes and thought that mine surely would fall short compared to their beautiful thoughts. I submitted my quote thinking that would be the last of that and that I at least tried. To my surprise I got an email yesterday confirming that they are in fact going to use my quote for the 2013 calendar. I was shocked! I had no idea my quote was good enough! I had no idea how these things work but I asked if my quote could be used for Genesis' birth month, March, and I was told that they could make that happen. How wonderful! Now I must buy one of the 2013 calendars! What an honor! Im beyond thrilled. And after all that I can't even remember the quote that I submitted haha! So when it comes out it will be a surprise to both you all and I.
