Years ago my late Father visited my family in Colorado to help with a basement electrical installation. I believe it was around Thanksgiving and while having a meal in the dining room, my Father saw a bald eagle for the very first time in the sky outside the window. He was very moved and excited to see America’s majestic icon.
My Dad passed in December of 2013. Several months later, I was speaking to my daughter on the phone. We talked about my Dad and the subject of my receiving a small inheritance from his estate came up. I told my daughter I hoped to use that special gift to purchase a piece of mountain property some day as my Dad loved the mountains. Right then a bald eagle flew toward me on the deck and then flew over my house. I felt it a sign that my Dad approved of my use of his gift.
Last week, I realized I needed reassurance that buying and fixing up the cabin in the mountains was what my Dad wanted for me. I needed the sign of an eagle. Today, I got that sign. While driving home from a beautiful afternoon of work at the cabin, I spied a bald eagle in a tree along the North Fork of the Big Thompson River.
Thank you Dad for the sign and the gift of the cabin in Glen Haven. I love you for it and I hope you are proud of me!
