This day used to be the day that my mom came to visit, year after year, to help us put up the Christmas tree and other holiday decorations. We continued the tradition this year without her, but imagine my surprise when I looked out the window to the back yard and saw our blue bird family from this summer visiting their bird house. Today. I have not seen them since I wrote this last post about the fledge in August.
Folks, there are no coincidences. I believe in my heart that my mom visited us in a special way today. Our special day, and one that I will miss celebrating with her.
I did not get a picture today, because I was heading out to meet with a parent who needs some help advocating for her son at school. But the rest of my family saw them, so I know it was real.
Here is one of my favorite pics of my blue bird family from this summer. I hope they continue to visit us and help us heal.
