Visiting From Heaven

Someone told me recently that cardinals are family members or friends visiting from heaven. I had never heard this about cardinals before but there was something incredibly comforting about that thought. 

I've lost a few people in my life that I think about every day. One of those people is my grandmother who helped raise me. So every time I see a cardinal, even though it may be just a nice thought, I like to think it's her. 

Have you heard this about cardinals? Who do you think of? Leave their story in the comment section below or just tell me what you think of the pictures. Thanks! 

Also, side note, I apologize for the length between the previous post and this post. I was moving to a wonderful new apartment and unfortunately that's where all my time went. I'm back now though :) And will keep the posts coming to you in a steady beat, promise!
