Lesson from a Cardinal

Lesson from a Cardinal.

You stand out so bright and beautiful and bold.
Do you realize the joy you bring to the cold?

You teach us life lessons without even trying.
May we be bright lights without even trying.

Help us to see
how easy it can be.

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. I have some living in my yard too. Like heartandsoul974 commented, I’ve heard they are visitors who’ve passed. When I see mine, I always say “hi Mom!” or “hi Dad!” or whomever else pops into my mind. They’re such happy looking birds – they make me remember with a smile rather than a tear. 🙂

  2. Beautiful photo, Jodi! They say “when a cardinal appears, an angel is near”. I was told this right after my mom passed, and now I think of and say “hi Mom!” every time I see one. Is it silly? Maybe. But to me, I find it comforting. 🙂 May you have a yardful of angels visiting! ❤

  3. What a great photo! How did you get the colors to be so vibrant? And I love the poem, too. We have several cardinals who hang out in the bush outside our dining room window, and seeing them there cheers me up no end!
