Do you believe in spirits after death or reincarnation?

My mom, Robin, passed April 3rd of this year.

Let me share with you a quick example of coincidence vs. belief...
It's obvious that my mom, Robin, would "come back" as a bird if she could "come back".

It's her name AND "bird on a wire" has a significance to her. She wanted a birds on a wire tattoo for a while, and even has my sister design it. She never got that tattoo but "bird on a...
wire" had come up numerous times in discussion with her over the last few years..
A few days ago there was a beautiful white moth on the inside of my door. I never seen a moth like this. I would remember that because my favorite color is white. My family, including my mom, knows this well.

Here is that moth.
I tried really hard to help it get to the outside, but in doing so led for it to go further inside my house. I did wonder if maybe that was "my mom" (aka her spirit) or a signal from her.

Days later I found it dead on my kitchen floor. Sorry moth.
About 2 years ago, my brotger in law died. Dragonflies were significant to him. He liked them, had a picture if a red dragonfly on his computer, and we all knew that was his favorite "symbol" or what have you...

Shortly after he passed there was a praying mantis in my room. It was so random but at the time I felt like may be that was him, but obviously hadn't yet developed enough skill to transform (or whatever) into his true form, a dragonfly.
Later, my sister and his son's had a party in celebration of his birthday and life in general when towards the end of the party, a huge dragonfly got into the house!

Soon after that, I had a visit from a beautiful red dragonfly at a playground and no matter what that...
dragonfly didn't want to leave our side!

It's hard not to believe when circumstances like this happen. Is it Not?

⬆️ which brings me back to my original point..

Here I am, today, finally able to relax and kick my feet up.

Here is my exact view..
Obviously, there isn't much view to outside since my blinds are closed.

But do you see what suddenly appeared as I looked out of that tiny visible spot?
closer look.🔍
It's none other than a robin.

Out of all the available space on that wire outside...it chose to sit exactly where I could see it.

My son and I got up for a closer look and the bird stayed.

For fun, I asked for it to jump if it was her.

I kid you not, it did.
