Hummingbird Taps (signs to others)
Thank you so much to all who have been following my blog! I’ve had several people ask if I ever receive other signs from my mom. I do! In fact, the signs you saw in my video https://www.facebook.com/WickisWings/videos/308888353261693/
were all sent the WEEK after she died. I received most of these, one after the other, in a very short period of time. I believe that was her way of making sure that I got the message. But she has also spoken through others, and I’d like to share two examples.
Around this time of year, five years ago, I met my friend Brooke for coffee. It had been over a month since my mom had died, and I was slowly beginning to reach out to others. Most were comforted that I was comforted by hummingbird signs, whether they believed in them or not. As I was sharing my story with Brooke, she grew very excited. She asked if I remembered the cookie bouquet that her family had sent on the day of my mom’s funeral. I remembered it well- it was devoured quickly by my kids and guests who stopped by the house. I knew it had been colorful and cheerful but couldn’t picture the type of sugar cookies in my mind. Brooke’s daughter, who was a young teen at the time, insisted that she order something “happy” for us. She directed Brooke to buy a HUMMINGBIRD cookie bouquet!!! At the time, I had not received any signs from my mom. The cookies arrived on the day of her funeral, but my first hummingbird sighting occurred a few days later. I still get such a smile when I think of the serendipity of the cookies- children often listen to the little taps of intuition and are willing to follow whims without reason.
Similarly, my son received his first sign that year, on the day after Halloween. He was a second grader at the time, and my mom had been gone for over a month. My kids knew how excited I was when I received “signs”, and he said that he prayed during Mass for a sign that day. After school, I took him to Starbucks for a hot chocolate, and he exclaimed “There it is! That’s my sign! I prayed to Wicki all day to send me my own sign and there it is!” If you’ve been in Starbucks, you have probably seen the hummingbird symbol on their Veranda Blend coffee. This was the first time it had been advertised on this board, right next to the register. Now we see it all the time, but the first time really spoke to us.
