The Cardinal


I saw a cardinal this morning. I just happened to look out the window and there it was. I had been thinking about my mother.
My mother passed away 11 years ago. She is truly missed. What is hard is that she has missed so much…but I know she is always with me.

A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, they’ll appear.

    What a gorgeous photo and a beautiful sentiment. I didn’t know the cardinal represented that.
