Reminders

God and I have this thing.

Whenever I am too caught up in my own thoughts (preoccupied...worried...angst-filled...) He will often send a ladybug my way to remind me that He is here. Present.

It is a way to get my attention.

And like getting flowers "just because" it can totally change my day, I simply have to be aware enough to notice.

Yesterday, I went to lunch with Allyson-in-Triplicate. And she gave me a glass-beaded necklace that she made for me which has a single glass ladybug.

As it turns out, I had never told Allyson the story of the ladybugs. And I think it is inordinately cool, that this one will last beyond a moment.
