Harmony has been on the search for a four leaf clover for a while now. It has been her goal to find one all by herself and to have fun feeling some extra luck come her way. After searching in our garden and the garden at school she was not having any luck in finding one.
A couple of weeks ago she came home from school and I could tell she was feeling a little upset about something. I waited for her to come and talk to me and when I was preparing dinner she came over, tapped me on the shoulder and shared that she was feeling sad at school that day.
When I asked her why she was feeling sad, she shared that one of her friends had come to school that day with a four leaf clover that she had found. Harmony shared that she felt jealous and sad that she did not have one yet. I gave her a hug, shared some kind words and was surprised when she even shed a few tears over it.
Her tears told me that finding a four leaf clover was really important to her right now. Even though she feels that it really won't bring her lots of luck, it was the goal of finding one for herself that was really important. So we had a chat, talked about being patient and sticking to her goal and worked out a plan to spend some more time searching for one.
A couple of days later we casually went out the front of our house, sat down on the grass and Harmony noticed a large patch of clover right next to us. She decided to have a quick look. Almost immediately I heard a scream come from Harmony! I looked up at Harmony who had a huge smile on her face and in her hand was a four leaf clover!! She had found one all by herself and was beyond excited.
That excited spurred on Liahona who took off into the back yard with Harmony and a short time later they both came inside with another two, four leaf clovers! Who knew that in our own yard we had so many four leaf clovers. No wonder we feel so blessed and lucky as a family each day!
