Sometimes fun lands in our lap softly, other times loudly and still others deeply and brings you to tears of joy and sadness which unites us.
My days have been full with clients, managing our construction project, family members and more recently the decline of my stepfather. In actuality, he has been on the decline for quite a while, in and out of hospitals and rehab centers but it has become clear that his life on earth is numbered.
Yesterday after a session I peeked out my window and was greeted by the most beautiful hawk up close and personal. It was in my magnolia tree and was just hanging around and I was elated.
I immediately thought of my MIL.
While we loved and adored her she loved to nag and specifically my husband about not getting a haircut. A week after she died, he was at the golf course and a hawk literally swooped down on his head and bit him bringing blood gushing. The staff had never seen this before. As he was leaving, there were 2 hawk feathers right at his feet. We all knew that was a message from her.
It may sound crazy to you if you’re not seasoned in messages from spirit but for those of us that are, we knew it was a message and we get a chuckle out the story and are always collecting hawk feathers.
I was excited to get these gorgeous pictures and felt blessed and immediately thought of the timing of my MIL and the message she might be conveying. My Stepfather and MIL were like oil and water, cut from the same cloth and could rip each other to shreds at a moments notice and sadly, they brought out the worst in each other.
Not as much as a half hour later, I got an emergency call from my mother saying come now, he doesn’t have much time. I called my daughter and I met her there. He was given his last rights and blessed and they expected him to pass any time since the crash was so extreme, but he actually rallied and his vitals were stabilized. It was uncanny.
I took the timing of the hawks visit as a sign from my MIL saying “hey, I’m ready to soar the skies with you, you can’t get away from me.” Haha. I told him about it and he rolled his eyes.

We don’t die all at once but slowly over time and the worst death is to have never lived at all and taken chances.Cindy
We die little bit everyday from things we didn’t say, places we never saw we dreamed of going,
chances we didn’t take, playing it safe out of fear.
Yet in truth, the only place we ever needed to go was in our own backyard to face our inner victories and defeat.
Life is meant to be lived, explored, seen for better or worse, the dips and the peaks, the rain and the sun, the buds and the blooms and the branches charred black.
And when our leaves have fallen and our last one hanging blow whispers of I love with tenderness while we witness the biggest gift you can give someone which is simply a peaceful presence.

All of my children are in different parts of the country at the moment except “Blhat” who has been a pillar of strength and today my baby from New York “Brontavalo” is on the plane heading home to visit which are the gifts we can never prepare for. “Gato” was at a work conference with his new colleagues and got to talk with him and broke into tears on the phone, “Narnia” can’t possibly leave 116 students who just got to New York. On the plus the two girls got to have dinner together last night.
My heart breaks for all of you who couldn’t be with loved ones during Covid and they had to die alone. I’m truly sorry and grateful to have this closure. I do love birth and death that stops time, and our hearts registers what is important as we shut off from what isn’t and time stands still for pausing and reflection.
And one more thing that truly made my heart stop on a happy note was driving by Joan Baez’s House and seeing this in honor of Ukraine which is a walking prayer in action.
