Your story is beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.
I have had a very similar experience.
In 2000, I lost my wife to breast cancer. She always loved birds, in fact she owned several parrots.
Susan was also very petite and birdlike in her appearance and mannerisms. I always called her my 'Tweety Bird'.
Several months after she passed, I was in a very depressed state. I was sitting out on my deck and talking to my sister-in-law about missing
Susan...and how I felt so alone and couldn't imagine how I'd could go on.
Out of nowhere, a small sparrow just came out of nowhere...and landed on my knee.
I told my sister-in-law on the phone...that a wild bird is just sitting here on my knee as we're talking.
I remember she said...oh, just brush it away!
...but the bird was just sitting there looking up at me...completely relaxed and unafraid.
I told my sister-in-law (still on the phone) that I said I thought this bird might be a message from Susan.
Just then, the little bird flew up and away from my knee...AND landed on top of my head.
It sat there, on the top of my head, listening to our conversation before finally flying off after another two or three minutes. Even moving the phone
around my ear didn't scare it off.
That amazing experience gave me strength, in knowing that I wasn't truly alone.
