Years -decades - ago, when we were young, my sister could go into any random meadow and within minutes she'd find lucky four leaf clovers. Lots of them. It used to tick me off to no end because I never found any, no matter how long I looked. She'd point me to the right spot and I still didn't see them. This went on for years.
A few months ago I went through some old books, some were my sister's (I have no idea how I ended up with them) and I decided to turn one into an art journal.As I flipped through the pages I saw three pressed four leaf clover leaves.
This gave me an idea.
I took the old book pages, painted them, and put some four leaf clovers on each page. Then I took a photo of each page, and I arranged them so that each finished picture would be a "set".Then I wrote a letter to my sister telling her this story, and gave this to my cousin, who flew to Germany last month and brought it to my sister.
Now my sister and I each have a mirror copy of the lucky clovers.
I used two clovers on her page, because she needs so much good luck right now as she's been battling lung cancer for 4 years and her health is currently taking a real beating.
