Hummingbirds

I have a special place in my heart for hummingbirds, as a child I can remember my grandfather always having hummingbird feeders outside his windows so that he could sit and watch them throughout the day. He was always sure that they had just the right food and their feeders were always full. I thought about that this week when Janie at Southern Lagniappe posted a picture of a beautiful hummingbird picture that she had found at a garage sale. I am truly touched by how a lovely creature can bring back so many memories of loved ones and every time I see a beautiful hummingbird, I am reminded of my loving grandfather. –Cheers, Amy

This brings back memories! I remember in October 2001 when your grandfather was sitting at the kitchen table watching for "hummers." His hair was falling out from chemo. What used to be a thick head of hair turned into thin strands of hair on his head. I was in the kitchen fixing breakfast for him when he started making this "humming" sound and moving his head back and forth. I looked at him and laughed...he loved his hummingbirds!
