Beautiful Hummingbird, I send a voice of wondering gratitude to you for your encouragement to seek joy and beauty as I walk the Good Red Road. I am thankful to you for your role in causing flowers to propagate, beautifying the world for all your relatives. Thank you for opening our hearts to this good day full of vibrant color and soothing music, bringing delight and refreshment to all your companions. Great Spirit, I thank you for the gift of this tiny relative who sends such a powerful message of hope and harmony. May I always, like this tiny creature, remember that no matter how humble, how little I am, my part is just as necessary in fulfilling the purposes of the Great Sacred Mystery. I have spoken.
