I am about to drift off for my nap.
There are two magpies perched on the telly receptor on my roof.
I do not tell a lie.
I'm all snuggled into bed and staring up at them through my 'sunlight' window.
I've never seen magpies there, only a fat pigeon. My heart is singing.
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret, never to be told
Eight for a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten for a bird you must not miss
"No longer forward nor behind I look in hope and fear; but grateful take the good I find, the best of now and here."
[John G. Whittier]
