I am down at my parent's home in Sunset Beach, NC, helping my father, who has been diagnosed with dementia. A couple of days ago, I was standing outside in a parking lot, and a leaf fell right into my hand. I thought that was pretty neat, as this rarely happens.
Later that day, I was bending over to adjust the faucet in the tub, and I looked down, and right in the middle of the tub there was a leaf. It was similar in size and shape to the first one. I don't know where it came from. Coincidental enough, right? So yesterday, I go into the ocean, and as I'm walking out meeting the waves, something in the water catches my eye. A small yellow-colored object. I reach down to pick it up - and miss. And a wave comes. But then I see it again, floating right in front of me. And I grab out of the ocean a small yellow piece of vinyl, shaped perfectly like a leaf - with a stem.
Well, now, I am a believer. And whatever spirit it is that I am now a believer in, is obviously trying to tell me something. I'm not sure I know what that is, but I do believe. Maybe that is is the message, to believe as in, "be leaf."
Any thoughts you have would be welcome.
