    Delightful story! I remember when you posted to Facebook about the birds glued to the counter. I didn’t realize that they had stayed glued! So glad that they are safe. What a special reminder of your mom. She had a story with the figurine, and now your story has been added!

    Beautiful! Thank you for sharing ~

    This says so much ~ so true!

    My favorite birds also – have some beautiful pictures by a local photographer in our entry way! Plus, we have a cardinal family plus little ones come to our bird feeders each day – the female is spunky, not afraid of anything. Mister Cardinal sits below on the new white fallen snow and watches over the family! A beautiful site.

    Deb, I loved the story, as usual, of your cardinals survival. More importantly though was the strength you showed going through two very powerful tragedies (mom’ death and the flood) and coming out stronger and an inspiration to others. Love your writings so keep it up!

    What a precious story. I feed dozens of cardinals in our yard every winter; I just love watching them.
