Over the past 15 years my husband, youngest son and oldest step-daughter have all passed. In December, my oldest son was struck down with a serious medical condition that made me anxious that he would also leave me.
Yesterday, I had two visitors.
While I was watching. my eyes caught a movement on my porch which was darkened by the awnings being down.
There on my railing a female cardinal was trying to get from inside my deck to the feeders. She finally found the way out and flew down to the ground below my main birdfeeder.
When I looked out my side window, I saw her in my second bird feeder.
I had a strangely peaceful feeling for the rest of the day after receiving visits from my loved ones to let me know everything will be okay.
