A Ladybug In My House


I found a ladybug on the curtain in my house!

I came in last night and saw something crawling on the curtain in my family room.  It’s cold here so I couldn’t imagine what it was.  Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was a ladybug!  So when I called up my best friend and told her, immediately she reminded me of one of my favorite movies – Under The Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane.  Have you seen it?

Below is the clip I found on youtube which talks about sadness and ladybugs.  Maybe this will remind you, like it did me, that we need to get on with our lives and it will all fall into place.  At least that’s my take on it and considering the healing that’s begun, the ladybug is a welcome friend in my home now!

Sorry, I couldn’t find a good one without Spanish subtitles, but the original movie is there and in English.  I hope you enjoy!

Cheers to ladybugs for us all!

    Lovely reminder Janie, thanks for thinking of this and sharing. If we could actively practice gratitude for the good bits in our day instead of wasting our precious time and energy on wallowing on our struggles, how much easier and stress free our day would be! Have you seen Louis Schwartzburg’s TED Talk, ‘Gratitude’? It’s amazing and was a turning point for me! Xx
