We woke up to freshly fallen snow, but before I could get in a funk about it I saw the most beautiful sight. Sitting on the white blanket was a male cardinal. A gorgeous red bird sitting proudly against a backdrop of brilliant white - his color just exploded. It was so beautiful it suddenly hit me that this sight is a great Easter present. I wish I had a picture to share.
'Big Red' (yes, we named him) reminded me of the importance of Easter. It is a day of new life, beauty and a clean slate. Spring is coming, even though it feels like winter will never end, the birds remind me that it will be here soon.
