Our Pet Lady Bug named Andrew
I remember once, after 10 or so years, pondered the thought that I was making all this up and it was just a coincidence. That night I went and did a Thirty-One Party for a hostess I didn't know. After about 5 minutes in her house she told me she was a Medium. As a Christian this is a no no but I'm in her house so I just continue on with my business until, a la Teresa Caputo she started saying things that almost made me vomit and a the end of it all I was shaking so hard I had to sit down. She told me the lady bugs were God telling me to chill out. I left feeling...interesting. The next morning I told myself it was all crap, as accurate as she was, it had to be crap ...then I walked out my front door and a bug hit me in the face, like a slap and landed on the house. Fine, Fine, I'll accept it. So yea, I see them less now that I get other God winks but if I'm being particularly stubborn and not looking toward God or having faith, they will come around....fly in my car and such (yes that happened once too).
Anyway back story over......A few months ago I saw this tiny, size of a nickel, Murano glass Lady Bug at a boutique in Rockville Centre . I decided to purchase it even though I thought $8 for a tiny glass bug was a little ridiculous. I figured I would keep in in my wallet as a good luck type thing.....that is until my daughter saw it.
I've been surprised it hasn't been lost yet.......Well, maybe it has been lost. This morning I found him under clean laundry and just before while I was asking God if I should get my hopes up about my "dreams" coming true....... I picked up a block and found Andrew under it. Maybe that was a yes, maybe it was a relax but it snapped me out of my funk.
I paused in my writing to yell at my kids for jumping off a dresser onto the couch......yes you read that right, they invent the most dangerous games. In the midst of my ranting, I catch my daughter, holding a tiny glass lady bug named Andrew that I swore I put out of reach.
