My mom died unexpectedly last spring. I spent the spring and summer trying to process her death. The final fledge in August was super important for me.
I waited for my blue bird family to return this year, and they did.
The fledge happened when we were in Asheville, and I have been waiting for them to return. But they haven’t. And today it hit me…. their arrival happened the week after my mom’s death. The final fledge last summer helped Samantha and I heal in a way we would not have otherwise been able to.
And then the return this spring… for only a brief visit, unlike last year. It was like my mom was checking in on us. And when she saw that we were ok, flew on to do other things in her new life.
I will end this post with the fact that I am not a very religious person, but my blue birds and their very purposeful addition to my life, make me aware that there is a higher power. I hope with all of my heart that my mom is truly watching over us and is finally happy.
