Tuesday: Tough Times, Extra Feathers

27 Aug

There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’
No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.”
― Dalai Lama XI
I thought it was going to be an easy-peasy day, no alarm, no appointments, no agenda, no stress. Not the case. Long story short, while Matt spent some “alone time ” with his father, I ran some errands. I spent over an hour at the bank trying to get accounts closed and changed, then to Home Depot, and a jaunt to Walmart. Feeling pretty down and exhausted, I sauntered towards the entrance, looked down …there was a lucky feather. Ah , perked me up.

Wait, I’m not finished! I thought , WOW, I needed a lucky feather today! I took out my phone and took a picture. A few more steps, another feather. In the span of maybe ten feet , I found SEVEN feathers. Seven! Now, that was a huge sign. It was like a trail of feathers. A very lucky sign for me… Not so lucky for the poor bird.







Seven lucky feathers. Lucky number seven.
