A Thought of a Desire

Have you ever had a strong need to have or experience something? Have you ever let the strong feeling go to appear on its own time, knowing that one day it would find you? Recently I had one of these experiences and I though I would share~

 

Last year and early this spring I had a small desire to find a four leaf clover. I had not seen one for many years and was starting to wonder if they really existed. I even looked up on Wikipedia.com. In my research I found that for every four leaf clover there are 10,000 three leaf clovers. At that point I let the wish go knowing that there was always a possibility that I may one day find one.

 

Why a Four Leaf Clover?

When I was eight or nine I used to search for four leaf clovers with my grandfather. He was the first person to connect me with nature. We would search for clovers on a small hill outside his house. One day we found 10-15 four leaf clovers. We brought them in and pressed them between two pieces of wax paper with an iron. We kept them for many years and after my grandfather passed I had not seen one since.

 

Wishes do Come True

When I let my desire go of finding a four leaf clover, I thought to myself ” I will find a four leaf clover at random. I will look down and find one because my grandpa is still with me. He will tell me when there is one at my feet”. I was walking around outside after hula-hooping in the grass and I just happened to stop and look down. At my feet were a large bundle of clovers and in the center was my four leaf clover…

  1. Wonderful experience! My father had the knack for finding four-leaf clovers almost anytime he looked down. I’ve found a few but I don’t have his gift.

    • We all have our own special gifts ~ luckily our gifts can be passed down by sharing a moment with another. We may not get the full gift, but just a little can go a long way… lol I hope that makes sense. Thank you for your comment Dara, you help keep the blog active and inviting.

  2. I believe often we have a desire, let go of it, and it becomes fulfilled. Only normally we forget that we ever had the desire. Choosing to let go and remembering the choice is a very useful and powerful habit to develop.
