Happy birthday in Heaven

Saturday, 11 July 2020

Happy birthday Dad! Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you or something you said, or would say. Your sense of humour lives on in all of your family. Wishing you a wonderful celebration in Heaven!

Dad sends us signs regularly and they become more noticeable, more over the top, around his birthday and the anniversary of his death (his new birthday). Today, he sent me a special crow.

Four crows are the norm. They show up at different times throughout the year, sometimes staying for weeks at a time, sometimes for only a day. In hindsight, they are usually there during times I need a reminder, or support. Today, seven crows appeared. The regular four, which I refer to as the ancestors. Two, which I felt were my grandparents (Dad’s parents) – they landed in the old, dead tree next to their old home. And then one, Dad, who perched on Dad’s oak tree. I felt surrounded with love and peace and great harmony. Thanks for the visit and the gift.

It was a rainy, foggy morning. When I stepped out onto the veranda, I was greeted by the geese, two turkeys and the seven crows. Not to mention a few red-winged blackbirds, black squirrel and a chipmunk. What a way to wake up!

Today’s photo of the day took me by surprise. I was trying to capture the hummingbird, trying different things but it didn’t seem to work as he continued to hide behind the feeder, out of my view. It wasn’t until I went through my photos to choose a few for the blog that I saw how clear this photo turned out. I was surprised and in awe of how pretty it is. This, this right here, is a gift from my dad on his birthday, and a reminder to never give up. Thanks Dad! Love you loads. 🙂
