White Feathers And A Special Beach

Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall, England
Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall
Today is very special for my wife and I as our son is getting married. The marriage, wedding reception and evening get together is taking place in an hotel. The photo above is the view from the opposite side of the road to the hotel - Fistral Beach. What could be more perfect.

I, therefore, won't be much around the blogging scene this weekend.

Though it's a happy weekend it also has a tinge of sadness too. On the way to the hotel we have to pass through the village where our daughter is buried. When we went to check out the hotel we stopped at the church and my wife sorted out the flowers while I rinsed the headstone.

As we left and closed the gate to the cemetery a white feather floated down from nowhere and dropped at our feet. I have mentioned white feathers in previous posts, links below. My wife automatically said it was our daughter saying 'thank you'.

Sometimes we lose people we love and the space is often filled, which helps. In our case we now have a wonderful daughter-in-law who has given us the most beautiful grandson - he's now nine weeks old. We are so happy that they are in our life.

Sometimes the white feathers remind us, however, never to forget those who have gone before - I believe they are always with us.

  1. Oh Mike---thank you again for such a lovely and poignant confirmation story about white feathers and spirit contacts. May the weekend be filled with joy for the entire Perry Family.

    That's such a beautiful beach and the surf is a gorgeous color.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Congratulations to your son! This is a poignant story, Mike. It seems to me your daughter is always with you and she simply reminds you now and then with the white feathers.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Wonderful, I agree. Enjoy.

    The WV for this post is "dinersa" and when I saw it, I felt sure your daughter is there at the dinner.

  5. Thank you for all of your kind words - we had a lovely weekend and even the weather was sunshine and blue skies. It was wonderful to see our son so happy with his lovely 'wife' - even if I did shed a few tears!

  7. I thought of you when I found this post. They are not white but I started thinking about the significance of feathers (i.e. light and floating; fall from above; shed during transitions.)
