Ladybird

This evening I was blessed to make a new friend. Her legs tickled my skin as her tiny red body skated along my hand. I whispered a secret to her before she flew away into the black velvet sky.

I should leave the window open more often.

Were you able to count the spots on her back? If it was an odd number, that means good luck! :-)

I remember seeing seven, which is my lucky number! If the picture of her perched on my hand were clearer, I'd be able to recount just to be sure, but she flew away before I could take a better picture.
