I posted on Facebook the other day, that I had seen a cardinal all around our house and neighborhood this past weekend

People commented that it signifies a visit from a loved one. I checked and according to Google,

It's said that cardinals appear when angels are near and that the cardinal represents loved ones who have passed away. They are seen as messengers from Heaven who deliver words of love and comfort during difficult times.

Both my wife and I are spiritual people. We both attend Church regularly. Was it a coincidence that both my wife Bonnie and I were thinking of our respective fathers who passed away, on Father's Day?  I'm not sure, but I'm comforted that a cardinal had come to visit and that angels were near.

I sure hope that he stays around.
