Signs From The Afterlife - Cardinals
My father just passed away on 6/25/11. He was 80 years old and was in pretty good health. He had cut grass and edged up his yard and his 83 yr. old neighbors yard.
He sat down in his chair under a shade tree, took his shoes off and went to sleep and never woke up.
I am at peace with how he went into eternity and how he lived while he was with us. We were extremely close as I was an only child and my 2 daughters (22 & 18) were his only grandchildren. Saw him daily and talked often.
He always drew birds on our bday cards and doodled them on a regular basis. He loved cardinal as does my mother (78). The day after his death, my oldest daughter (who has always been an indigo child and clairvoyant) saw several cardinals congregated in her yard. She thought it odd but didn't say anything to me until 3 days after his death. She was talking to me while she was driving to work and said "omg...I just saw a cardinal fly in front of my car in the rain".
Not 2 hours later, I was sitting in my mother's house and a neighbor (who has no clue about my dad's bird fondness or my daughter's earlier comment) said, "wow! look at that bird!"
I looked out the door and sure enough it was a cardinal acting very oddly! He was walking back and forth on the branch like a parakeet would do and jumping up into the smaller branches as if he was saying "LOOK AT ME".
My daughter sees them everyday and even saw one fly by her car with a bluebird. I had one fly behind me while getting something out of my trunk and it sat on my neighbor's deck and looked straight at me!
I had one fly in front of me while pulling out of my driveway and land in the dogwood tree my father planted 20 years ago! I believe in miracle and signs and I know it is my father or at least a sign letting us know he is with us! I hope he knows we miss him but that we are at peace that he never suffered physically on earth and that he was the best!
