Shortly after Jacob passed away there always seemed to be two Blue Jays that would come sit by the window in our living room (or soon to be master bedroom/nursery) I just knew it was the boys. It seemed so fitting. Maybe they had been there before and I just never noticed but I do tend to notice noisy birds outside my window so maybe it truly is a sign from my boys that they were together. This morning I heard them squawking away and went to see what was going on. Sure enough there were two Blue Jays, I said good morning to the boys and then a third Blue Jay joined them. At first I took this as a sign that they were going to bring us another sibling for them but then a fourth showed up and I was like wow...we're going to have twins...okay we can handle that....then a few minutes later number five, six and seven showed up and then I decided it wasn't a sign from the boys that they were giving us a sibling because I know we won't be having quintuplets. But I still took the first two Blue Jays as my boys saying hi! And if they are planning on making us pregnant with 5 babies...umm no we'd be happy with just one, even two would be okay.
I wrote this a few days ago...forgot about it but I'm glad I didn't post it yet because something else amazing happened today. The street we live on can be a bit noisy at times with all the traffic and while I was out doing yard work it got so very quiet, quiet enough you could hear a pin drop, it was like the world had stopped for a moment. I looked up and every so gently two Blue Jay feathers were floating in the air and I stood and watched the two feathers float around and then they came right by me and then disappeared. It was so incredibly peaceful, at that very moment I felt such an immense feeling of content. I love my boys so much for sending me such awesome signs that I know can only be explained by them!
