Yesterday, this male Northern Cardinal seemed to be doing the same thing, trying to warm himself in the rising sun. A chilly wind buffeted his crest, which, along with his beak, glowed in the morning light. Cardinals, often associated with Christmas, symbolize hope, love, cheer, pride, focus, creativity, energy and renewal.
I realized we weren’t all that different, he and I, dependent upon the light and warmth of the sun. Feeling a connection, I quietly enjoyed our peaceful moment together.
Wishing you and yours a warm, wonderful and peaceful holiday season.
