“A Rooster’s Crow” My Family is with me

If you read one of my first books, you know the story of the rooster watch.    It was my dad’s.   While I cared for my ill dad, his rooster watch would crow about 18 times on the hour.   It was a gift from a blind charity to which he sent donations……After a while, that rooster crowing got on my nerves………I envisioned many ways of making that crow “croak.”    When my dad died, I walked around the empty house and and all the stuff I would have to clear away……….

I put that watch in my pocket.   For a couple of years, that crow was my daily comfort.   What I had hated, I loved……..

Then, a couple of years ago, the crowing stopped.   It wasn’t an expensive watch, it still kept time, but my rooster was silent with the morning sun.

Today, on my Casper’s birthday,casper-face in a week filled with another tragedy of my heart (the passing of my dog, Bailey)………I was upstairs getting dressed.    From the first floor, I heard a crowing………it was my father’s watch.

Why today………after so long of a silence………..

Spirits tell you they are around………some leave pennies, some leave feathers, some leave the essence of tobacco or perfume in the air……..  Some leave roosters……..

Thanks Dad…….
