My first experience was early one morning while I was pet sitting. I was out on their covered patio. The dogs running around and me deep in thought. I was contemplating my job. I love love love my job, but to be honest I was needing to make more money. While I was sitting there, out of the blue a small white feather came floating down at my feet. I did notice it, but didnt give it too much thought until I got to work. One of my co workers was giving her two week notice. I was so sorry to see my friend leaving us, but it left me with the opportunity to get a raise.
My next experience was concerning my sweet cat Annie. She got sick very fast and within two days I was taking her to the vet to be put down. The vet wanted to run a couple tests first. Turned out Annie was very diabetic. Her blood sugar was over 600. They put her on glucose and IV's and had me leave her there until 5pm. I had a perscription for insuline and she was perking up. I had car problems and was waiting on a tow truck to get me to Discount Tire so I could run these errands and pick up my little Annie. I was getting frustrated with the tow truck, they were very late. At 2pm I went outside to see if maybe they were driving around looking for me. I looked at the clock and know it was 2pm. As I walked out this white feather floated down and landed at my feet. I picked it up and put it in my purse. While sitting at Discount, the vet called me with some bad news. She said at 2 oclock Annie started having respitory problems, they had her on a ventilater and giving her CPR. I had to let her go.
The third time was this week. At work, we have a Marketing/PR lady in our office who has been swamped. We were toying around with the idea of me helping her out part time. I was driving on an errand for work, thinking about if this would really be too much. We are swamped at my job too, and I am missing creating so much and want to find time for new designs. Sitting at a stop light, I kid you not, I see something falling out of the sky. As it got closer, it was a white feather floating down and landed right by my car door where I was sitting!
I see white feathers almost every day now. This is just three stories. But they make me happy. I dont see these as "good luck" or "your wish came true". Its simpy the thought that no matter what happens, good luck, the loss of a loved one, just know someone is watching over you. I put the feather that floated at my feet when Annie went into respitory failure at 2pm in this cylinder and made a necklace to always remember.
