egrets to see. Every time I saw one I was in awe of their beauty. I started telling myself they were good luck. My best friend and I were thinking of starting a decorating business together. We were going to name it White Bird Decor. We never started the business but to this day I still think if I see a white bird it's good luck. When Gary and I were dating we'd see white birds and point them out to each other saying it was a good luck day.
One day I was driving my mother to the hospital in San Francisco for her cancer treatment. It was a stormy day and we were listening to classical music on the radio. The music matched the storm we were driving through. My mother asked me if I thought she was going to make it. At that very moment a white egret flew over my car. I pointed the bird out to my mother and said "see that white bird it means good luck especially if it's flying over your car". I said to my mother "so that means you're definitely going to be OK." That day I believed what I said and I think my mother believed me too. My mother did recover from her cancer. Sometimes I think the power of positive thinking is all that's necessary to heal oneself. Well maybe not all but I think it does help.
St. Christopher medal. The gentleman reached up and retrieved the medal saying he'd found it when he was about fourteen years old and had carried it ever since. He said "what are the chances of finding a pure silver medal with a silver chain". The gentleman is probably in his seventies and has had several heart surgeries in recent years and so far has survived every one. I like to think his silver St. Christopher medal has kept him safe all these years. I'm sure he feels that way.
Since today is Friday the 13th I thought this was a good day to post about superstitions and beliefs. Are you superstitious about today? What about you, what are your superstitions? Do you believe they are true? Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
