The cardinal was my mother's favorite bird. Each time I see one, I feel like it is a loving reminder my mother is praying for me. This year we have several cardinals in our blue spruce trees. I feel so delighted each time I see them and I think of my mother.

Isn't it wonderful that the people who have passed from this world are still with us. Little things like a bird bring our loved one's memory back for a second. If we are aware, we never really lose our loved one.

  A lovely picture! Each morning I fill up many bird feeders, and usually the first to come for "breakfast" are the Cardinals--- They must compete with the squirrels and the chipmunks, however! We also have sparrows, robins, and doves----And some brands that I do not know the name. (crows and woodpeckers appear at times)

Cherish the sweet memory of your mother. My mom was my earth angel, and now is in Heaven's choir...

Blessings to all!

    We hold them close to us in our hearts! My mother loved hummingbirds and so does my husband. We have four large feeders out on our deck. They zoom in and swarm around the feeders! Such interesting and beautiful little birds!

    That's beautiful, honey. And cardinals are beautiful birds.. I love them too! We've got quite a few around my house here in the mountains.

I understand your heart about your mother too... my mother passed a few years ago and I still miss her very much. God bless you and ease the pain of missing her.

    Everytime I see a gardenia I feel the same way. Mom had perfume smelling like gardenias. chris

    So nice! I never seen one of these birds... Must be native to the area you are from.
