KathyG Posted June 3, 2008 Report Share Posted June 3, 2008 I'm not quite sure what to make of this.Yesterday, when I had just finished my work for the day, I had a powerful urge to go sit outside. So I got myself a cold drink and went out to my back patio.It was a bright, sunny day with a clear blue sky. I started to unwind as a soft breeze nudged my wind chimes and I listened to the water splashing in my fountain. For awhile I spied on the two wrens and their babies who make their home in a saguaro cactus in my neighbor's yard. I closed my eyes. I was thinking about how much my Bill would have enjoyed the day.Suddenly something made me look up. A beautiful white dove was looking down at me from his perch on a tall pine. The bird and I stared straight into each other's eyes for a long moment. Then he gracefully flew away.I've seen many local birds around here, including mourning doves, but none of them look like this dove did. I think it might have been a sign from my husband. There's the obvious symbolism of the white dove, and I had just been thinking about Bill when the bird appeared. But Bill had a phobia about birds - so would he have used one to send me a message? I'm still wondering. All I know for sure is, after the encounter with the dove I felt peaceful and blessed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
