The First and Last Time I Saw The Bluebirds

I saw a male Eastern Bluebird in my yard last week, five days before what would’ve been my daughter Ana’s 21st birthday. I thought it was a sign from her.

The bluebird was perched in our Catalpa Tree, above the bluebird box that we’d installed several years ago. Until then, I’d never seen a single bluebird investigate the box and I’d only ever seen one or two pass through my yard.
