For me, it’s cardinal birds. They were my mother in law’s favorite bird. I always think of her when I see one.
Some people even think their loved one is visiting if they see cardinals or find a penny, see a butterfly, etc.
Special relationships never die.
Please share your story...
I have had a couple of dreams since she passed where she and I were either spending the day or traveling together, just walking around or sightseeing and talking. Mom was like her younger self, when she was more healthy physically and mentally and used to like to travel. I don't remember where we were in the dreams or what was said, but I remember feeling happy when I woke up, like I had just had a good visit with her. Maybe it's her letting me know she is okay and happy now.
When my mom died in 2013 my brother planted that idea in my head that my mom was visiting as a Blue Jay and then I began to see a Blue Jay or two around my yard. My brother even placed a little Blue Jay statuette on her headstone.
Well, that brother died in June and don’t you know now I have 2 Bluejays that visit my yard pretty often. I hear their distinct song and my ears get perked up. Sure enough the 2 bluejays are visiting. They come and as quickly they are gone.
Thats my mom & brother watching over me.
Also my mom died at 3am. I went outside to pray and there was a beautiful Full Moon. To this day I call a full moon “mommy’s moon”- only to myself, of course.
Nice topic, NHWM. Warm & fuzzy memories.
Cardinals are beautiful. I love them.
I love this topic and hope more people comment!
If anyone in my family is a reincarnated fly I guess they are out of luck with me because I smack them! What is the lifespan of a fly anyway?
Hope I haven’t offended anyone. I truly am respectful of all faiths.
