Happy birthday from above

I read somewhere that when a cardinal (the red bird type) makes an appearance in your yard, they have come to tell you that a departed loved one is thinking of you.  As I was pouring a cup of coffee first thing this morning, I noticed this bright red cardinal in my garden…

As he hopped through my (still snow covered) garden, he stopped to pose a few times and sing a few notes before a female cardinal joined him.  As she is less brilliant in color, a brownish red instead of the bright red, she was harder to photograph.

I think the cardinals were a Happy Birthday message from my dearly departed parents.  My dad was an avid bird lover, and my mother was never far from his side…

  1. Aw, I’ve never heard of that before, but I think it’s so beautiful! Next time I see a cardinal it will make me that much happier! 🙂

  2. Yes, I’ve heard that about cardinals. Every time I spot one in my yard, it warms my heart and reminds me of all the loved ones I’ve lost… I enjoy reading all your blogs, Lori! Keep it up! Your topics are really interesting and you write so beautifully. xo
