Perfect Moment Monday: Rainy Day Inspiration

I'm a "Perfect Moment Monday" virgin. I usually don't have time to post this kind of frivolous stuff, but I had the most perfect moment this morning, I had to share it.

I woke up to a dark, dreary, cold, rainy day, the kind of day you want to just pull the covers over your head and go back to sleep, especially when you have the AF blues. One of my morning rituals is to peek under the blinds while Magic is still sleeping and look out the window down to my garden. I wish I could have taken a picture of what I saw this morning.

A hummingbird was taking a bath on a collard green leaf that had collected some water from the rain. The collard green leaf was one I had not picked, and was lying parallel to the ground. The little hummingbird was rolling back and forth on the leaf, having a good old time taking it's bath. I had never seen anything like that before. Life is always in fast forward for hummingbirds, so this moments didn't last long before the hummingbird flew off.

With the weather beginning to change, it won't be long before the hummingbirds will fly south for the winter. I worry about them, and hope they can stay warm on this cold, wet day.

You can find the rest of the "Perfect Moment Mondays" over on Lavender Luv's blog.

Thanks everyone for your comments over the last week. It really helps me to stay somewhat sane while making this difficult decision. I finally e-mailed my embryologist this morning to get his take on what our inventory will cover. I have a feeling that we only have one shot left.

Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment.

I think hummingbirds are amazing and we had quite a few here over the summer. There haven't been as many recently as the cooler weather has set in.

I've been participating in Lori's Perfect Moment Mondays for about six months.

I find that it helps me to be on the lookout for Perfect Moments, which I have found, happen all of the time...when I stay present and notice them happening!

That is beautiful.

Sometimes it just takes a "sign" to make us realize we have so much!

I can only imagine a little hummingbird giving itself a bath! Thanks for painting the picture.

I hope you get better news from the embryologist, that there are more than enough frozens to support whatever plans you may make.

What a sight! Something so rare seems likely to accompany a wave of good luck.

Let's just agree on that!

So lovely and exactly what I needed!

Definitely a perfect moment. I wish hummingbird encounters lasted longer. Just as I get excited to see one, it seems they are gone.

Hoping you hear great things from the embryologist.

That really does sound like a perfect Monday moment!

Very very cool. I love moments like that. They are the things that make life worth living.
