A Pleasant Pheasant Visit & Sweet Farewells

Updated: Apr 25, 2022

I get to the end of the week (Friday) and think, “Wow! That was a long week!" I realized at some point, every week is filled with new and interesting challenges – it’s just how life is. I’d like to share two unrelated items that happened this week.

For some reason, I had a rooster pheasant (male) squawking and seemingly trying to get into my house for a few days. It was the oddest thing. At one point, I went to the front door and he was standing there. Later, he left me some 'presents.' I also saw his footprints in the snow by the house and I could hear him calling during the day. My friend said, “Maybe it’s a sign.” Ah well, it probably is! A Google search turned up a lot of answers:

  • The pheasant has long been seen as a symbol of good luck. It is believed that seeing one will bring you wealth, success, and happiness in life.

  • Encounters with Pheasant Spirit Animal leads to a sense of openness in your life. You're encouraged to remain open to fresh experiences and people.

  • People with a pheasant totem have a great deal of ability to attract love and creativity in their lives. They prefer open spaces so they can roam freely.

  • This is a reflection on your life. It shows that you have a bright, creative side. Also, you influence the world around you quite easily.

The bottom line seems to be that it’s a good thing! I’ll keep you posted on the pheasant predictions.

Yesterday, I went to a funeral luncheon to honor my great Aunt Dolores. I have fond memories of her – she was a creative person and made beautiful Christmas ornaments as well as baking up a storm, including homemade Chex Mix! She was my Grandma Gen’s last living sibling and lived to be 95 - still with her wits about her. It was great to connect with her family. They are, as they have always been to me, beautiful, generous women that are quick to give me a smile and a hug. I don’t know if I will write a poem about Dolores, albeit she was an inspiring woman. A few years back, my Grandma Gen passed and I wrote a poem for her that I never published but it has a special place in my heart. A printed version on canvas hangs in my house to this day.

I wish you a wonderful Earth Day and relaxing weekend!

Let’s chat soon.

With affection,

Carrie VS
