A Lucky Find

DSCF2135-001

 

A few weeks ago I went through an old box and found something very precious, a booklet of my grandfather’s. Inside was 5 1/2 pages filled with 54 four leaf clovers. The writing on the first page says “July 15 1949, 5 min work…10. 4 leaf clovers Charlie Jr.” I’m not sure if all the pages were gathered that day or if the first page was the day’s collection and the others were added later. I wondered, had he bought a lotto ticket if he would have won lol.

 

My Turn

While walking around the yard earlier this week I happened to find a few four leaf clovers of my own.

Instead of picking my day’s treasures I decided to capture them with my camera and leave them to their environment. And although I found 2 I didn’t even think to pick up my lotto ;).

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…
