Husband and the Hummingbird
This past weekend in Nashville, hubby was outside and calling for me. I thought that the door was locked and went and he was not there and he kept calling me--scared me--thought he was having heart attack or something, so I went runnig outside. He had this tiny hummingbird in his hand and it was ALIVE. I have never see a hummingbird in anyone's hand that was alive. Hubby was paniced and so was the bird. It was in the garage and he had seen it fly in and then on its' back in the garage window. The poor little thing had gotten trapped in a spider web. Well he had gotten it out of the web but it had the silk all around it and couldn't fly. It was so tiny and was crying. We were so scared that we woud hurt it but very tenderly picked the web off of it. It just laid in his had as if it knew we were helping. As the last bit came off, it flew! I am still patting him on his back for saving the hummingbird. What an amazing experience.
