Little Wonders

There seems to be a running theme in my life the last few months with...........I know it's odd...........but fireflies.
I swear the little creatures keep popping up everywhere.
I didn't really notice it till recently but they seem to be making themselves known to me in every way possible.
Here are the ones that I remember

1)One of my fave singers releases a new CD called "Fireflies",I think it actually might have been out last year but I just bought it in May
2)my FAVE song on the Cd is the title track"Fireflies",I listened to it in the car every day
3)I read an article in the paper about where all the fireflies are going,what's happened to them etc
4) a week or two later we witness THOUSANDS of them in our yard,we caught them,took pics,I even blogged about it back in June
5)I call to rent a cabin in Tenn for this October and the 1st one the lady on the phone reccomends is called "Firefly Lodge"
6)my son brings a book home from the store about yep...fireflies!
7)I'm reccomended a wonderful book by an online friend called "Chasing Fireflies"
8) I get an e-mail from an online catalog yesterday with the summer special.A "Fireflies in a jar" nightlight!!
9)I've been finding the little guys in the house in places you wouldn't think they would be

ok,as you can see this is a little curious.I've always been drawn to the little guys but this is weird.I'm thinking this all can't possibly be a coincidence so I went online to find the "meaning" or symbolism for fireflies.This is the 1st thing that I found............................

"The symbolic meaning of the firefly of course deals with light, illumination and the like. Although an important focus, the issue of light is not the high feature behind the symbolic meaning of the firefly. Rather, it is the messages this wonderous creature gives us while her light is off may be most profound to our growth.
Here is a summary list of symbolic meaning of the firefly"

New Ideas

"When fireflies come into our lives they are there to guide us to ways of living that are more earth-friendly, and soul-friendly. Fireflies teach us the value of living simply, and relying on our own inner voices for illumination. Fireflies also come to us with a message of creativity, and remind us that our paths are made lighter by the beauty that we allow into our lives"

Wow,I really have no idea what it all means but I think that they really have come into my life for a reason,no doubt in my mind.
