A little reminder to live life to its fullest
It's so easy to fall into a daily routine and to just take care of all the things that need to get done without really stopping. How often do we just rush through the day... week... month .. and then wonder where all that time went?
Thankfully I have 2 girls who remind me daily how precious life is and that there is tremendous joy in just blowing bubbles or lying in the grass watching the clouds pass by or admiring the delicate wings of a dragonfly.
Supposedly, the dragonfly is a reminder to live life to its fullest because its life span is short. I believe in signs and I believe our little visitor yesterday morning stopped by to remind us to slow down a bit.. blow those bubbles and watch the clouds.
The dragonfly has different meaning for different cultures, some good, some not so good. However, since there is some Native American in my family (my husband's grandmother) we'll understand it as a good omen that it landed at our house.
It also symbolizes courage, strength and happiness ... a fitting description for a military family.
