Hope Comes in Blue

We returned home from vacation last night after 10 days of incredible weather camping with our children, spouses, grandchildren, and pet dog (not mine). Our grandson purchased a birdfeeder for my husband, but I was the one who fell in love with it right away.
While sitting on the deck early one morning, seven blue jays appeared- 3 on the feeder and 4 on the ground beneath.
Bluejays have always been a sign of hope and new beginnings for me. One would have been a treat, but 7 became a sign. As a mom and grandmother and wife, the "just for me" things are rare when we are together. Others in my family saw one or two, but the seven never returned after that morning.
Thank you , Lord.
