Cardinals are special to me. Growing up, I remember seeing those beautiful red birds and thought how special they were. They looked so different than other birds in our yard! My dad told my brothers and I that those beautiful birds were Santa’s Birds. If we saw one, that meant Santa was checking on us, and they would report back to Santa our good deeds (or bad!).
I lost my dad 2 years ago and miss him dearly. But whenever I see a cardinal, I know dad is around me in spirit, checking in on me. ~*~ Eileen Smith Anglin
