A flash of red made me pause . . .
Legends say seeing a cardinal means a loved one is reminding you that even though they aren’t physically here, they are still with you and this is your "sign". After our recent snow this little beauty was the only creature in sight. It had just finished snowing and it was so quiet outside. I was looking out the back window, and there he was just over the fence. He was hard to miss against the newly fallen snow. I knew the meaning and it gave me pause, who is checking in on me? It’s close to my grandmothers birthday so I take it as a visit from her. She was so special to me, I was fortunate to spend a great deal of time with her before she passed many years ago, as her chauffeur, as her dinner companion and her person to tell old stories too. She loved unconditionally and she wanted to see everyone happy, she went out of her way to do so. So this was just to remind me that she’s around. And to slow down and enjoy life’s beauty, to not let life’s enjoyments go by the wayside and get caught up in things that really don’t matter or aren’t good for me. And to take care of me, of my people and enjoy this crazy life. So I’m going to remember and you should too. If you see one of these little beauties, think about the message someone is sending you. Have a wonderful day!
