See The Picture ‘Fixer Upper’ Joanna Gaines Posted That Has The Internet “Humming”

Five years ago, Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, planted an Adonis blue butterfly bush outside her daughters’ bedroom at their Waco farmhouse.  Gaines hoped that the bush would attract butterflies for the girls to see.  Then, Gaines forgot about it.  Years past, then one day, she saw her daughter, Emmie, perched at the window, “looking excitedly at the bush and saying,’Here she is! My little hummingbird comes every morning, Mom!'”

Gaines was overwhelmed by this “parenting” moment.  Emmie truly thought the hummingbird that visits every morning was hers, not knowing that her mother had planned the sweet surprise years before.  “You sow seeds early on and work hard to be intentional and then over time you move on to new lessons and challenges,” Gaines said.  “Then one day, you look up, and the seeds you planted in your little children’s hearts are now in full bloom.  Be encouraged today to keep pressing in and tending to their hearts. It will be worth it.”
