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.


The Dragonfly - a good omen

Hi Andrea,

I just love Dragonflies and they land in my pool but never long enough for me to get a picture. But I commend you on getting one to stop on your hand. Incredible.

FYI: One of my all time favorite movies is "Dragonfly" with Kevin Costner. It has a wonderful story to it.

Thanks Brenda! I hope it will hold true and lots of good things are coming our way :-)

Hi Myrl, I don't think I have seen a purple one yet. Apparantly the blue ones are the most symbolic for the Native American warrior.

Hi Kristin, it was just amazing to see. He just sat in my husband's hand for a few minutes! I'm going to have to watch the movie, I'm not sure if I have seen it before or not.

Hi Cindy, hubby's hand that is! I don't know what it was but the little dragonfly was just drawn to him .. he even walked to the bus stop with it to drop off our daughter and to show it to the other kids! Perhaps the warrior in him?
