Birds of Love

The days before any "special" day associated with my dad, I always seem to notice unusual occurrences that would be considered signs.  Signs that my dad is near.  Something inside me just knows it.  I don't look for these signs and I don't expect them.  They just happen....

On Sunday, 9-9-12 the day before the 19th anniversary of the day my dad became an angel, I felt a presence around me.  It was a beautiful day, just after noon,  I was walking my dog Honey on the trail around my home.  It was quiet with no'one around.  Just me, my Honey dog and my thoughts.  The birds were tucked away wherever they go after their morning song.  All of a sudden out of no where, I heard the familiar chirp chirp chirp flying behind me, getting closer with each chrip.  Before I had a chance to turn around, I saw it, it flew right over my head into the tree right beside me - my precious cardinal!
I felt a wave of love....
Immediately after my lil red friend landed next to me, I saw a beautiful Robin flying straight at me from the other direction, almost eye level.  One lone Robin!  I couldn't believe my eyes.  He landed in the tree on the other side of me.  It was rare to see a Robin this time of year, they are all gone for the season.
 I was surrounded by love....  I felt it! 
Then, as I look down the path, I see 3 birds hovering over a small puddle of water.  I thought maybe they were morning doves as I see them around often.  As I got closer I saw they were pigeons. Very special pigeons with white circles on each of their wings.  I see alot of pigeons in NYC, but never ever ever on my walking trail here on Long Island. Never!  There was something special here.... I felt it.  Well, Honey scared them off of course but I was in a state of peaceful bliss from these unexpected visits.
I thought to myself, "this is going to be a wonderful day!"  
As Honey & I continue our walk for a few minutes longer we decided to turn around and return home.  As we got closer, I could see those same three pigeons on the grass under the tree right outside of my patio.  They waiting for me!
