MY DAY: The cardinal returns

For the past 20 minutes I’ve been sitting out on the deck snapping green beans. It’s been a somewhat quiet morning and one with little productivity. I casually said to the dogs, “Well, kids, it’s been one month today since Flyer left us.”

Several minutes after saying those words the cardinal that hangs out in our yard with his mate, landed on the deck rail again.

A week after Flyer’s death I was sitting out here on the deck when the cardinal bravely landed on the deck rail. I mentioned this in a Facebook post, and I received several stories about the meaning of the cardinal’s visit. Several responders indicated that it was Flyer’s way of checking on us to see how we were doing, and to let us know that she was okay.

So, it does make me wonder, on this one month anniversary if Flyer was just checking in on us. If there was a way to do so, I am certain Flyer would find a way.
