Dear Mom

A Time of Reflection

Well, it is New Years Eve 2008. Can you believe it? I’m finding it difficult to believe that the end of the year is upon us. After all, in so many ways, it seems to have just begun. Like most Americans, this time of year causes me to reflect on the past and look towards the future with great anticipation.

Change is a hard to deal with in life. This year was full of changes and challenges for me. Most of them were good, but not everything turned out as I would have hoped.That is what is great about the New Year, as we all have the chance to start over once again and continue moving forward to reach our goals, whatever they may be for each of us.

On Mother’s Day of this year, May 11, 2008, this blog was launched. It has been a joy to share my knowledge and love of hummingbirds and a little about my life with each of you. Thanks for joining me on this remarkable journey!Let’s continue it together well into the future.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or even suggestions for future topics. We truly do want to hear from you! Your input will be what helps make the blog become even better in 2009.

2008 is a year that has ended on a very sad note for me. In the past two weeks or less, three friends of mine have pasted away suddenly and unexpectedly. Death is difficult at any moment, but when it comes without warning it is especially difficult to except. I hope that these special people knew just how very much they meant to all those around them. Loosing so many friends so close together has made me strive to live my life to the fullest and never take those I love and care about for granted. Let my experience serve as a reminder to you to do the same in your own life.

Have a very Happy New Year everyone! I know I look forward to discovering what 2009 holds in store for me as well as all those that I love.I will be striving to continue to accomplish all of the goals and dreams I have set for myself. Won’t you join me in this journey? Best of luck everyone and remember to live life to the fullest and without regret!

Zoe, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment on my site. I came by to read up on what you have to say here about some of my favorite little birds! What you said about the sugar water not freezing up as quickly in the cold weather sure proved true during our frigid temperatures. My brother the ‘birder’ had told me to make it instead of bothering with the red nectar that can be found in stores. There was a time or two I’d bring in the feeder to pop in the microwave long enough to thaw a bit but it never did completely freeze. And even so, the hummers were still coming! I am absolutely fascinated by these beautiful little birds. Happy New Year to you!

This was definitely something I’m glad I took the time to read this blog. I was actually about to go back to searching before I scanned through your first paragraph. It offered a great, concise, and, best of all, different method of looking at it. Kudos!

I love your blog, found it while randomly surfing the Internet a couple days ago, will keep checking up.
