Cardinals Came to Visit

It's the middle of our Winter season and I'm having some issues at home that make me weary of the weather and the world in general.  I have heard it said that when you see a cardinal it is a visit from a loved one who has passed over.

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.

A brilliantly-colored male cardinal was at my bird feeder and just sat there watching me.  A kind of peaceful feeling came over me as I gazed at him letting the knowledge that I had been visited by a loved one.

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.
