My mid-life crisis included building a house on a hillside last year. I cried when I first stepped onto the land and my friend Claire said, "I knew you were in trouble when I saw that look on your face."

As the house neared completion, I was asked to describe the experience. Childbirth came to mind.

First, the shock that I actually felt capable of tackling the financial burden and c-c-c-c-commitment. Then, giddiness began as I started selecting beautiful items for the house and planning for its future. I fell more and more in love and made my friends SICK with showing off all my selections. At the end, the pain of the last few months made me promise God ANYTHING if he/she would just end my misery and let the pain subside.

Yesterday, after a long cold winter, Mother Nature smiled and sent me my first hummingbird.

So, like any proud parent, I must share the moment.

Beautiful picture. I love humming birds, I remember spending a summer on a farm in Oregon once and there were several that would frequent the property. They're such cool little birds.
