"Cardinals Appear When Angels are Near" so the saying goes.

This little portrait of a red cardinal is a reminder
that we're never far apart from our departed loved ones.
They show up when we are remembering them the most
and their spirit will help the person live on in your heart.
As a symbol, I have experienced this one
a bunch. There was JUST a pair at my farmstead in Kansas.
JUST two, male and female. Always there, always calling one another,
never far apart. My mom passed about 6 years ago, and my dad just over a year.
I always believed these birds were there to remind me
of how much my parents were loved and vice versa.
Just in time for Valentine's Day!
