I've said it before - I believe in signs. I think it goes back to my Catholic upbringing. Something about all those saints finding the image of Jesus or Mary in a tree stump or loaf of bread and seeing it as the sign to give their lives to God. I saw a dragonfly. I see it as a sign of good things to come. I may be deluding myself but I think we all need something to believe in and since I gave up religion for the time being, it's going to have to be insects.
Or this! This weekend is National Alpaca Farm Day. It's a little strange that a "day" is actually being held over two days, but when you're living the farm life I guess you can be a little loosey goosey about those things. I don't need someone to hit me over the head with a tree stump with the image of Jesus riding an alpaca on it. If this weekend is National Alpaca Farm Day and I just so happen to have been thinking of starting my own alpaca farm then someone's trying to tell me something.
But I think it's this sign I should be paying attention to:
You don't have to beat me over the head with a stump. Right now you could knock me over with a feather. I guess fate had a plan for us all along.
